Tiberius, 19 August 14 - 16 March 37 A.D.

Tiberius became Augustus' stepson when the emperor married Livia in 38 B.C. Augustus forced Tiberius to divorce the wife he loved and to marry his daughter Julia. Tiberius hated his new wife and escaped her by going into voluntary exile at Rhodes in 6 B.C. After the deaths of the other possible successors, he was recalled in 2 A.D. and groomed to succeed Augustus, which he did on 19 August 14. The empire thrived under Tiberius; however, his reign was marred by a conspiracy to rule by his Praetorian Praefect Sejanus and by his descent into paranoia near the end of his reign. Tiberius moved to Capri in 26 and ruled from there until his natural death on 16 March 37.

Tiberius, 19 August 14 - 16 March 37 A.D., Restoration Issue Struck under Titus

|Tiberius|, |Tiberius,| |19| |August| |14| |-| |16| |March| |37| |A.D.,| |Restoration| |Issue| |Struck| |under| |Titus|, |as|
Titus followed his father's policy of honoring prior emperors by issuing commemorative coins. He issued coins that resembled original coin types in a contemporary style. In BMCRE Vol II, TITUS-TYPES OF ROME, Mattingly states: "The 'restored' series of Titus served a double purpose; it preserved the memory of famous coins of the early Empire which were becoming obsolete and it emphasized in the public mind the continuity between the Flavian dynasty and its predecessor." Restoration and restitution are employed by modern day authors to describe these issues.

Livia, Wife of Augustus and Mother of Tiberius, 22 - 23 A.D.

|Livia|, |Livia,| |Wife| |of| |Augustus| |and| |Mother| |of| |Tiberius,| |22| |-| |23| |A.D.|, |dupondius|
The portrait of this coin has been traditionally described as depicting Livia, based on Cohen's catalog. Even if as early as 1880, A. Colson was proposing that the portrait is actually Livilla, Drusus' wife, it was not in time for Cohen to consider it. The portrait of Pietas alone is paired with the reverse naming Drusus. Livilla was believed to have shown piety over the sickness and death of her husband, Drusus. (Later it would be shown that she had poisoned him).

Orichalcum dupondius, RIC I T43 (S); BMCRE I T98; BnF II T74; Hunter I T26; Cohen p. 170, 1; SRCV I 1741, F, well centered, marks, porous, mild pitting, weight 12.931 g, maximum diameter 27.6 mm, die axis 180o, Rome mint, 22 - 23 A.D.; obverse veiled, draped bust of Livia or Livilla as Pietas right, wearing stephane, PIETAS below; reverse DRVSVS CAESAR TI AVGVSTI F TR POT ITER, legend around large S C (senatus consulto); scarce; $110.00 SALE |PRICE| $99.00 ON RESERVE
