    Great set so far. Make sure you don't get a Caligula with built in bronze disease. :cool:

    Lovely coins, lordmarcovan, particularly that Octavian Tet.

    I know, right? Given my past luck with Caligula coins, I’ll keep my fingers crossed… :rolleyes:

    There all nice. My two favorites are Claudius
    and Vespasian.

    @GarrettB I'm relatively ignorant, at least that's what the doctor
    told me. Which one is the Octavian Tet?

    The Augustus coin. He was originally called Octavian, but was given the name “Augustus” as emperor. (And that name became a title for all the subsequent emperors).

    Since my tetradrachm came from the time he was Augustus (and in fact even says AVGVSTVS on its reverse), I probably should not have even put “Octavian” in the title of my listing (even though it’s referring to the same guy). I used both names in the title but might now edit it to remove the reference to his earlier Octavian name, given the period in which the coin was struck.
