I do love this issue - its a great bust!
I have two of them - in fairly low grade but this is one general (and Consul) that certainly deserved to be commemorated on a coin.
Here is one...
RI Agrippa AE As 28mm 11g Neptune-S-C Left
Agrippa. Died 12 BC. Æ As. Rome mint. 28mm, 10.46g.
Struck under Gaius (Caligula), AD 37-41
O: Head left, wearing rostral crown.
R: Neptune standing left, holding small dolphin and trident.
RIC I 58(Gaius)
There are several distinct bust styles on these, I wonder if anyone's done a systematic comparison or a die study.
Ooh that is a gem! That would be one of my favorites too.
