Gaius Septimius Severus Aper (c. 175 - 211/212), Consul Ordinarius in 207.

Aper came from Leptis Magna and was probably a grandson of the Consul Suffectus of July 153, Publius Septimius Aper. Aper was in the year 207, together with the otherwise unknown Lucius Annius Maximus, Consul Ordinarius. Aper is possibly in the Historia Augusta called Afer, which in the end of the year 211 or 212 on command of the emperor Caracalla was executed.
