Image of a bust of Septimius Severus, also known as Rome's African Emperor.

Of this Caesar, Herodian (the famous historian) says:

No battles and no victories can be compared to those of Severus, and no army to the size of his army; there are no comparable uprisings among nations, or total number of campaigns, or length and speed of marches ... He prevailed over them all by his courage. It is not possible to name another like Severus. (Herodian, History of the Roman Empire, 3.7.7)
