Tiberius, 19 August 14 - 16 March 37 A.D., Apamea, Phrygia
Apamea or Apameia, Phrygia (also called Apamea Cibotus, Apamea ad Maeandrum, or Apamea on the Maeander) was an ancient city in Anatolia founded in the 3rd century B.C. by Antiochus I Soter, who named it after his mother Apama. It was in Hellenistic Phrygia, but became part of the Roman province of Pisidia.
This magistrate also struck coins for Livia. That, and the youthful portrait resembling Augustus, indicate this type was struck early in Tiberius' reign, before 19 A.D.
