Description

Details

Lucius Verus was an adopted heir of the emperor Antoninus Pius, who became co-empeor with Marcus Aurelius in 161 CE. He was married to Lucilla, the daughter of Marcus Aurelius. Said to be a weak man addicted to pleasure, his premature death in 169 CE, was most probably a relief to his brother emperor Aurelius, whose reign and actions history remembers kindly.
