Roman Provincial Coins of Gaul
Augustus and Agrippa, c. 10 - 14 A.D., Colonia Augusta Nemausus, Gallia Narbonensis

|Roman| |Gaul|, |Augustus| |and| |Agrippa,| |c.| |10| |-| |14| |A.D.,| |Colonia| |Augusta| |Nemausus,| |Gallia| |Narbonensis||dupondius|
The reverse commemorates the conquest of Egypt in 30 B.C. This theme was probably used at Nemausus because the colony was settled by Egyptian Greeks and veterans from Anthony's army that had surrendered to Octavian at Actium. This coin is from a final revival of the type with the addition of P P, for Pater Patri, Father of the Country, on the obverse. Augustus was honored with this title in 2 B.C.

Nemausus, Gaul, c. 40 B.C.

|Gaul|, |Nemausus,| |Gaul,| |c.| |40| |B.C.||obol|
Colonia Nemausus was founded as a colony by Tiberius Claudius Nero in 45 or 44 B.C. for veterans that had served Julius Caesar under his command in Gaul and the invasion of Egypt. He was the first husband of Livia and was persuaded or forced by Octavian to divorce her. At the wedding he gave her in marriage to Octavian "just as a father would." The myrtle crown (Corona Ovalus) was bestowed upon a general by the Senate for an ovatio (minor triumph and triumphal ornaments), but not a triumph. Tiberius Claudius Nero as quaestor to Julius Caesar defeated the fleet of Ptolemy XIII on the Nile in January of 47 B.C. Suetonius notes that for this he received a priesthood. No ovation is recorded. However, about 16 lines are missing from the restored Fasti Triumphales describing awards dating 54 - 45 B.C. Presumably, Tiberius Claudius Nero received the myrtle crown for what was certainly among the top Roman military achievements against foreigners during this gap.
RP97011. Silver obol, RPC Online I 519 (18 spec.), SNG Cop 691, De Luynes 764, CCBM II 597, De la Tour 2718, VF, toned, off center on a small flan, scratches, light earthen deposits, ragged chipped edge, weight 0.234 g, maximum diameter 10.3 mm, die axis 180o, Nemausus (Nimes, France) mint, c. 40 B.C.; obverse helmeted and draped bust right; reverse NEM COL in two lines within myrtle wreath; rare; SOLD
