Wasnít he the one that Russell Crowe killed in Gladiator ? Not really true to life. He was Ceaser for 7 years and was poisoned, if I remember right.

Nice coin N8 Iím sure someone will confirm thatís what youíve found 👍

Yes, certainly Commodus.

Commodus was actually co-emperor from around 175AD to 180 when Aurelius died, and was sole emperor until the last day of 192AD when they tried to poison him, but he sicked it up, so they ended up strangling him (thanks wiki).
