Ex Philip T. Ashton Collection. Acquired in London, June 2001.

This reverse type commemorates Caracalla's departure from Rome along with Septimius Severus and Geta on their British expedition. This departure is undated in the written sources, but the coins clearly assign it to 208 AD (TR P XI for Caracalla, TR P XVI for Septimius Severus).
