Member of the The Severans dynasty.

Coins for this issuer were issued from 218 until 222.

Julia Soaemias was the mother of Elagabalus, and did much of the administrative work during his short reign. Her lover, Gannys, had the idea of making Elagabalus emperor; Elagabalus had him executed shortly after his accession, probably because Gannys had too much personal ambition.

Julia Soaemias was killed along with her son by the Praetorian Guard in March 222.
