    Here’s my Agrippa As minted under Caligula. I’ve posted it plenty of times but I finally got around to taking somewhat decent pics. Post some coins of Caligula or any featuring Roman figures besides the emperor. B3484451-08F7-42F2-B40D-1EDC8373ADC4.jpeg 4DD4707C-D67D-4A8F-8C5E-BB1445EAC5F0.jpeg

    Very nice coin!
    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...

    My Agrippa is one of my favourite coins:

    There are several distinct bust styles on these, I wonder if anyone's done a systematic comparison or a die study.

    Congrats! IMO, one of the more appealing Julio-Claudian coins - I love the powerful portrait.
