Tiberius, 19 August 14 - 16 March 37 A.D., Laodicea ad Lycus, Phrygia
|Laodicea| |ad| |Lycus|, |Tiberius,| |19| |August| |14| |-| |16| |March| |37| |A.D.,| |Laodicea| |ad| |Lycus,| |Phrygia|, BMC assigns this type to Augustus. RPC I assigns it to Tiberius but notes the difficulty in determining if it is a coin of Augustus or Tiberius. It certainly looks like Augustus, but many portraits of Tiberius intentionally exaggerate his resemblance to Augustus. In any case, it is a beautiful portrait in fine Greek style. We know the KOP monogram stands for KORNHLIOS because it is spelled out in full on coins of another Dioscourides under Domitian.
