After the murder of Caracalla in March of 217, Macrinus who was Caracalla's praetorian prefect seized the throne. He gave his son, Diadumenian, the titles Caesar, Princeps Juventutis, Antoninus, and eventually, Imperator, and Augustus. The first cousin once removed of Caracalla, Elegabulus, was accepted as the rightful son and heir of Caracalla by the troops stationed at the Phoenician-Syrian border and was proclaimed sovereign in May of 218. Macrinus hasted to put down the usurpation, but was caught and executed. Ths coin, minted in this tumultuous period, bears all of the above inscriptions-titles. "MO" is Marcus Opellis (i.e. Macrinus), IANTONIONIO is Diadumenian. KAI is Caesar, CE is Augustus
