Description Julia Domna, a Syrian, was the wife of Emperor Septimius Severus (reigned AD 193-211). The smooth uninterrupted expanses of her face, the heavily lidded eyes with the pupils created by two overlapping, spherical cavities, and the detailed incisions of the hair are distinctive of this period.
