Ancient Roman Bronze Exclusive Bust with a Partrait Characteristics of the Emperor Caracalla (211-217 AD) 3/4 Facing.
A very interesting small bust not the most artistical portrait but still very recognizable and realistic without any with very masculine spirit without any idialistic characteristics so this portrait displays the character of the emperor like it was. Caracalla was one of the sons of the Emporor Septimius Severus and after his death he and his brother Geta could not divide the throne and even their mother Julia Domna could not set the peace between them. The emperors palace was divided with separate entrances and exits, even for the first time came the idea to divide the whole empire until one day Caracalla murdered his own brother and than deified him! He was more soldier than a ruler love to spend his time in a military campaigns like a normal legionnaire sharing his life with the legions. His character was strong and severe like could be seen in this interesting bust. Caracalla was adored from the germans because he allowed them to serve in the roman legions and treated them very well increasing the sellaries with more than 50%.
Caracalla was murdered in the military campaign against the Parhians in 217 AD from his Pretorian Guards.
