Hadrian then chose a new heir, Marcus Catilius Severus (i.e. Marcus Aurelius, b. in April 111), but he was then too young to rule. Finally, Hadrian decided on Aurelius’ uncle Titus Aurelius Fulvus Boionus Arrius Antoninus (i.e. Antoninus Pius, b. in September 86), shortly before his own death in July AD 138, but with the condi- tion that Antoninus would adopt both his nephew and Aelius’s son Lucius Ceionius Commodus (i.e. Lucius Verus, b. in December 130). Aurelius and Verus became co-emperor on 8 March AD 161; Aurelius’s daughter Lucilla was promised to Verus in order to strengthen their links (the wedding only took place in AD 164 – once she was 15), and this coin cel- ebrating the CONCORDIAE AVGVSTORI – The Harmony between the Augusts – was certainly struck in the following months.
