Second only to Cunobelinus in terms of power, Verica was the third king to lay claim to being a son of Commios. He reunited the kingdom after it had been divided by his 'brothers' Tincomarus and Eppillus. Later in his reign it appears he had trouble with his northern neighbors, Epaticcus and Caratacus, and possibly received aide from Rome (see Cassius Dio, Roman History LX.19).
