Commentary


Poids lourd. Rubans de type 3.
Si Auguste associa plusieurs fois son ami Agrippa au monnayage, il ne le fit jamais seul. Caligula (Caius) restitua la mémoire de son grand-père, Agrippa, en rappelant qu’Agrippa avait revêtu son troisième consulat en 27 avant J.-C. tandis qu’Auguste prenait son septième consulat. Caligula, nouvel Auguste, veut rappeler sa double filiation : par son père, Germanicus, il descend de Néron Drusus et d’Antonia, donc de Tibère ; par sa mère, Agrippine l’ancienne, il rappelle qu’Agrippa et Julie sont ses grands-parents et qu’il est l’arrière petit-fils d’Auguste. Agrippa jouissait encore d’un grand prestige tout au long du Ier siècle de notre ère alors qu’il était mort en 12 avant J.-C. Titus, puis Domitien restituèrent à leur tour ce type monétaire qui semble avoir connu un grand succès auprès de la population (RCV. 2589 et 2894).

Historical background


AGRIPPA

(63-12 BC) Marcus Vipsanius Agrippa

Return of Caligula

Agrippa was born the same year as his childhood friend, Octave. Agrippa showed great military qualities, especially naval. It was he who won the Battle of Nauloque in 36 BC which allowed to terminate the danger posed by Sextus Pompey. He was the winner of the battle of Actium September 2, 31 BC face fleets of Antony and Cleopatra. When Augustus fell seriously ill in 23 BC, he put his seal to his friend. In 21 BC, he married him to Julie, her only daughter (39 BC - 14 AD). They had five children, three boys Caius Lucius and Agrippa, who was born after his father's death (12 BC) and two daughters, Julie and Agrippina. Augustus adopted the two eldest son of Agrippa and Julie to be his successors. Agrippa died returning from a mission in Pannonia at the age of 51 years. Augustus, who was to survive more than a quarter century, had just lost his best support.
