Kingdom of Bosporus, Aspurgus, c. 14 - 38 A.D., In the Name of Caligula
This type and similar coins of Tiberius were both struck with this date, with young portraits, about which RPC I notes, "the pieces with the portraits of Tiberius and Caligula were probably made at the end of the reign; the Tiberian pieces are so similar to the Caligulan ones that it seems very likely that both were made within a short space of time."
