Amenhotep III ruled Egypt for almost 40 years during the 18th Dynasty. His reign was a period of unprecedented prosperity and artistic splendour, when Egypt reached the peak of her artistic and international power. When he died (in the 39th year of his reign), his son initially ruled as Amenhotep IV, but later changed his own royal name to Akhenaten.

Severus Alexander was the 26th Roman Emperor. He was the last emperor of the Severan dynasty. As emperor, Alexander's peace time reign was prosperous. In military conflict against the rising Sassanid Empire there are mixed accounts, though the Sassanid threat was checked. However, when campaigning against Germanic tribes of Germania, Alexander attempted to bring peace by engaging in diplomacy and bribery. This apparently alienated many in the legions and led to a conspiracy to assassinate him.

Barletta Colossus - large bronze statue (16.7 feet) of an Eastern Roman Emperor. Not much is known about either the origins or the subject of the statue. From the Gothic diadem, he might be Theodosius II, father-in-law of Western Roman Emperor Valentinianus III (5th century CE). The statue may have been originally located in Ravenna, then transported in Barletta by Emperor Frederick II in the early 13th century CE.

Gallienus was the 41st Roman Emperor with his father Valerian from 253 to 260, and alone from 260 to 268. His reign saw the invasion of Germanic tribes and the constant revolt of various governors and generals (some of whom declared themselves emperor). He was assassinated while laying siege to Milan. Interestingly, he was the last emperor to call himself "Printeps," or First Citizen.

Maximinus Thrax was Roman Emperor from 235 to 238. He was the 27th emperor and the first of the so-called "barracks emperors," and never set foot in Rome. The Roman Senate, which did not support Maximinus, ultimately declared Gordian and Gordian II as co-emperors; he marched on Rome, but was assassinated in northern Italy.
