After Septimius died, a drastic change on the portrait types of Geta has been noted. He is shown bearded, sometimes particularly heavily as in the present example, trying to imitate his fathers look and thus promoting his image as a rightful heir against his older brother. Caracalla had, unfortunately for him, different plans.
