Member of the The Severans dynasty.

Coins for this issuer were issued from 202 until 205.

Publia Fulvia Plautilla was the first wife of Caracalla, selected by his father Septimius Severus to cement relations with the commander of the Praetorian Guard (her father).

Caracalla hated the marriage, and refused to eat or sleep with his wife. He threatened to kill both her and her father when he came to power. In 205, Caracalla arranged to have some centurions bring false accusations against her father, and succeeded in having him executed. Plautilla was exiled for her relation to the wrongfully-killed man, and when Caracalla came to power, he had her killed.
