Julia Aquilia

Julia Aquilia Severa ? A.D.

Aquilia was Elagabalus's second wife, having married her in the summer of 220. He divorced her shortly afterwards and immediately married Annia Faustina only to divorce her, too, just a few weeks later. He finally remarried Aquilia and stayed married to her until he was murdered a couple of years later but she never bore him children. Coins bearing her name and portrait are relatively rare.
