    Description

    Nero (AD 54-68) with Agrippina Junior. AV aureus (19mm, 7.66 gm, 3h). NGC VF 4/5 - 4/5. Rome, AD 55. NERO CLAVD DIVI F CAES AVG GERM IMP TR P COS, conjoined bust of Nero, bare-headed, and Agrippina Junior, draped right / AGRIPP AVG DIVI CLAVD NERONIS CAES MATER, quadriga of elephants left, bearing two chairs holding Divus Claudius, radiate, scepter surmounted by eagle in right hand, and Divus Augustus, radiate, patera in right hand, scepter in left; EX S C in left field. RIC I 6. Calicó 397a. Two nice early portraits and attractive toning.

    From the Morris Collection.

    The last of Nero's early issues, this aureus with the deified Claudius I on the reverse must be a depiction of Claudius' funeral procession. He was only the second emperor to be deified, and the scene is identical to the sestertii issues of Tiberius dedicated to Divus Augustus.
