    After a short stay in Rome, Severus moved north to meet him. Septimius Severus does not mention her in his autobiography, though he commemorated her with statues when he became Emperor. The Historia Augusta claims that Marciana and Severus had two daughters but their existence is nowhere else attested. Afterwards Severus returned to Syria to plan a more ambitious campaign. He spoke the local Punic language fluently, but he was also educated in Latin and Greekwhich he spoke with a slight accent. In vain, however.

    Severus' Eastern Campaigns During the fighting, two of the peoples of upper Mesopotamia -- the Osrhoeni and the Adiabeni -- captured some Roman garrisons and made an unsuccessful attack on the Roman-allied city of Nisibis. The bloodiness with which Severus gained and maintained control of the empire tarnished his generally positive reputation. In the initial fighting, Albinus' troops forced the Severans into retreat, during which Severus fell off his horse. Whether or not he really advised his sons on his deathbed to enrich the soldiers and disregard all others, the anecdote is a just estimate of the direction he gave the Roman world. But as he advanced through the country he experienced countless hardships in cutting down the forests, levelling the heights, filling up the swamps, and bridging the rivers; but he fought no battle and beheld no enemy in battle array. Julianus was condemned to death by the Senate and killed.

    Severus, after a short stay in Rome, moved northwards to meet him. Caracalla was involved in directing the army's campaigns, while Geta was given civilian authority and a promotion to joint emperor with his father and brother. Severus appointed prominent jurists to high administrative posts; and the appearance of a number of Rome's greatest legal names on the Emperor's council brought a humane approach and increased protection for the humble in the legislation of the Emperor. Septimius Severus does not mention her in his autobiography, though he later commemorated her with statues when he became Emperor. On 19 Februaryin the Battle of Lugdunumwith an army of about 75, men, mostly composed of Illyrian, Moesian and Dacian legions, Severus defeated and killed Clodius Albinus, securing his full control over the Empire. The Roman armies easily swept through upper Mesopotamia, traveling down the Euphrates to sack Seleucia, Babylon and Ctesiphonwhich had been abandoned by the Parthian king Vologaeses V.
