Commentary


.
Auguste aurait souhaité voir Germanicus lui succéder mais celui-ci mourut trop tôt. Son nom resta célèbre dans l'armée. Caligula, une fois au pouvoir, frappa monnaie au nom de son père afin de légitimer sa propre accession. Ce type fut frappé entre 37 et 41.

Historical background


GERMANICUS

(19) return of CALIGULA Caius Cæsar Germanicus

Return of Caligula

Germanicus was the eldest son of Nero Drusus and Antonia. He was born in 15 BC and was adopted in 4 along Tiberius. He led numerous campaigns on the Rhine-Danube limes and received the Triomphe 17. He was then sent to Syria with a proconsul imperium and died at 19 in Antioch, perhaps murdered at the instigation of Tiberius by Pison (Suetonius). He is the father of Caligula and Agrippina the Younger, and brother Claude.
