ARTICLE ON COINS OF THE SEPTIMIUS FAMILY

Arthur Shippee also writes: "Here is an interesting feature on
coins of the Severans (not the 'Septimius family'):

"One of my customers told me that she was trying to interest
her daughter of 25 years in coin collecting. The customer said,
I told her collecting is all about the story behind the coins.
My daughter told me, It had better be a pretty darn good
story to interest me. So thats why Im calling you. I need
a coin collection with a great story.

What kind of a story do you want? I asked.

Im afraid itll have to be a soap opera, she replied.

Almost immediately the story of the ancient Roman Septimius
family came to mind. I knew part of the story because I had
collected some of the coins, but little did I know just how
convoluted this clan was. The more I researched it, the more
intrigued I became."
