Chapter Summary

Liber Pater and Hercules are in the coinage under Septi-mius Severus as di auspices and di patrii dubs. The name of both a di patrii shows that the native gods were meant. But these were not Roman city, but the gods of the birth home of Septimius Severus, the gods of Lepcis Magna. The inscription was so clear that you're probably not come up with the idea to recognize two very important and ancient gods of Rome in the native gods by connecting with the image. The most important testimony of the epigraphic tradition of Liber Pater in the imperial representation of Septimius Severus is found in Rome Inscription fragment with portions of the Carmen saeculare in the Secular Games 204 AD. The original text of the chapter is in German.
