Opellius Macrinus was Roman emperor from April 217 to June 218,
reigning jointly with his son Diadumenianus. As a member of the
equestrian class, he became the first emperor who did not come from the
senatorial class and also the first emperor who never visited Rome
during his reign. Before becoming emperor, Macrinus served under Emperor
Caracalla as a praetorian prefect and dealt with Rome's civil affairs.
He later conspired against Caracalla and had him murdered in a bid to
protect his own life, succeeding him as emperor.

From my own collection. I have owned this coin for a very long time but ceased actively collecting many years ago.
