11-aug-capricorn.jpg
ROMAN EMPIRE -- Time of Augustus46 viewsROMAN EMPIRE -- Time of Augustus (?), 17, Cyprus Mint (?) Die axis is 12:00, if the star is oriented above on both sides. Obv.: Capricorn on a globe, star before. Rev.: Scorpion, with a star above it. Reference: RPC 3916.

LOTS OF ARGUMENTS on where this coin come from... I believe CYPRUS. The obverse with star before the Capricorn is similar to the reverse of Augustan denarii (RIC 542). The Capricorn was the birth-sign of Augustus,
and the other coins found under the same mosaic suggest a date of about this time. Scorpions were and are native to Cyprus and Southeastern Europe. The Scorpion on the coin, is probably a second birth-sign, Scorpio. Livia was born January 30th, which makes her an Aquarius. The exact date of Caius Caesar's birth in 20 BC is known to between August 14th and September 13th (Likely Virgo, perhaps Leo). But, Tiberius was born on November 16th, 42 BC. He was a Scorpio. Perhaps, the coin connects to the dynastic relationship celebrated on larger double portrait dupondii. The 17 mm diameter and 2.68 gram average weight of the sixteen examples of this coin in RPC is about equal to the quadrans of Rome. SOME people say it is a TESSERA.... However, one of the leading experts in the field says DEFINITELY NOT!
