Livia (Julia Augusta), 14 - 29 A.D., Wife of Augustus, Mother of Tiberius
|Livia|, |Livia| |(Julia| |Augusta),| |14| |-| |29| |A.D.,| |Wife| |of| |Augustus,| |Mother| |of| |Tiberius|, In 22 when Livia fell ill, Tiberius hastened back to Rome from Capri in order to be with his mother. This coin was probably issued to thank Salus for her recovery. Ancient historians say, however, the reason Tiberius retired to Capri was because he could no longer endure his mother. Livia fell ill again in 29. Dying, she held out several days in hope of his coming but he remained on Capri and sent Caligula to deliver the funeral oration. Tiberius vetoed divinity and all the other honors the Senate granted her after her death.
