The portrait of this coin has been traditionally described as depicting Livia, based on Cohen's catalog. Even if as early as 1880, A. Colson was proposing that the portrait is actually Livilla, Drusus' wife, it was not in time for Cohen to consider it. The portrait of Pietas alone is paired with the reverse naming Drusus. Livilla was believed to have shown piety over the sickness and death of her husband, Drusus. (Later it would be shown that she had poisoned him).
