Septimius Severus

Septimius Severus was the first African-born Roman emperor. This marble statue of the ruler from Alexandria in Egypt would once have been vividly painted, and shows him in military dress. He grew up in Leptis Magna, on the coast of modern-day Libya, and moved to Rome when he was around 18. While emperor, Severus had to deal with uprisings and civil war on all sides of the empire and died in York while trying to conquer territory north of Hadrian’s Wall. He was born #onthisday in AD 145.
