Commentary


À partir de 10 après J.-C., Tibère, associé au pouvoir et héritier présomptif d’Auguste, participe au monnayage de son beau-père.
Le monnayage à l’autel de Lyon, comprenant de rares sesterces (GB), des dupondii et des as (MB) ainsi que des semis et des quadrans (PB), est traditionnellement rangé dans le monnayage impérial par l’école anglo-saxonne ainsi que par J.-B. Giard. Il était classé au XIXe siècle aux gauloises (cf. E. Muret et M. A. Chabouillet, BN 4691-4786 et H. de La Tour, LT. 4693, 4744 et 4771). En réalité, ce monnayage s’inscrit dans la tradition commencée une trentaine d’années plus tôt à Narbonne, Lyon, Vienne et Orange, continuée ensuite par Nîmes. Le choix des auteurs du Roman Provincial Coinage peut paraître arbitraire de ne pas les avoir inclus dans leur corpus. Ce monnayage, fort complexe, constitue une extension du monnayage colonial et sa permanence dans la circulation dans l’Occident romain (et la Gaule en particulier) montre l’importance du nouvel atelier dans l’Empire. À côté des émissions officielles, nous avons de nombreuses imitations “gauloises” de ce type qui a connu une longévité et un succès inégalés.

Historical background


Tiberius

(08/19/14 to 03/16/37) Tiberius Claudius Nero

Caesar (4-14 après J.-C.)

Tiberius, the son of Tiberius Claudius Nero and Livia, was born November 16, 42 BC His father, Caesar's lieutenant at the Alexandria War (48-47 BC), is then rallied to Antony. Octave removed Livia, mother of Tiberius, and the wife 38 BC when she was pregnant with Nero Drusus. To complicate later the family tree of the Julio-Claudian Tiberius had Vipsania divorce to marry Julie, the daughter of Augustus, Agrippa's widow (12 BC). After chosen as heir, Augustus prefers his grandchildren and son Tiberius then exiled to Rhodes. After a failed plot Julie Tiberius divorces her and never seen again. 4 Augustus adopted Tiberius, who succeeded him in 14. His reign lasted 23 years. Germanicus, he did not like, dies at 19. He loses his 23 son Drusus was murdered by his wife, Livilla, with the help of the praetorian prefect Sejanus, his lover, which retains its power until 31. Denounced for his crimes by his sister, Antonia, Sejanus is executed. Tiberius retired to Capri since the year 27 died, perhaps murdered at 37 and his nephew Caligula, great-son of Augustus, succeeded him.
