A bronze as of Augustus from the Lugdunum (Lyon) mint. Countermark TIB applied during the reign of Tiberius (14-37 AD).

Tiberius mother, Livia, divorced his father and remarried to Augustus in 39 BC. Tiberius is recognized as one of Rome's greatest generals, whose campaigns laid the foundations for the northern frontier. After the death of his son Drusus in 23, the quality of his rule declined, and ended in terror.
