16/15 -10 BC ROME GAUL NEMAUSUS AGUSTUS & AGRIPPA AE DUPONDIUS. CERTIFIED BY NGC FINE. OBV: ADDORSED CROWNED HEADS OF AGRIPPA AND AUGUSTUS. REV: CROCODILE RIGHT, CHAINED TO PALM TREE. 25 MM IN DIAMETER ROME MINT. MARCUS VIPSANIUS AGRIPPA b. 12 AD WAS A ROMAN GENERAL AND STATESMAN. HE WAS EDUCATED WITH THE YOUNG OCTAVIUS AND THEY BECAME CLOSE FRIENDS. AFTER THE ASSASSINATION OF JULIUS CAESAR, AGRIPPA PROVED HIS LOYALTY TO HIS FRIEND, AND ALSO PROVED HIMSELF AN INVALUABLE MILITARY COMMANDER. IN 36 BC, OCTAVIAN AND AGRIPPA SAILED AGAINST THE FLEET OF SEXTUS POMPEY, SON OF POMPEY THE GREAT. AGRIPPA WON DECISIVE NAVAL VICTORIES FOR WHICH HE WAS AWARDED THE ROSTRAL CROWN, A NAVAL CROWN WITH THE FRONT PART OF A GALLEY IN MINIATURE, WHICH HIS IMAGE BEARS ON THIS COIN. THIS WAS AN UNPRECEDENTED HONOR, SO MUCH SO THAT THAT DIO IS QUOTED AS REMARKING A DECORATION GIVEN TO NOBODY BEFORE OR SINCE. AMONG HIS OTHER MILITARY VICTORIES, MARCUS AGRIPPA IS CREDITED WITH WINNING THE BATTLE OF ACTIUM, ONE OF THE MOST FAMOUS NAVAL BATTLES OF THE ANCIENT WORLD, WHERE THE FLEETS OF MARK ANTHONY AND CLEOPATRA WERE VANQUISHED, WHICH LED TO THE RISE OF OCTAVIUS AS THE SOLE RULER OF THE ROMAN WORLD. LATER, AFTER OCTAVIUS WAS NAMED AUGUSTUS BY THE SENATE, AGRIPPA WOULD MARRY JULIA THE ELDER, DAUGHTER OF AUGUSTUS. THROUGH THAT UNION AGRIPPA WOULD BECOME MATERNAL GRANDFATHER OF CALIGULA AND MATERNAL GREAT-GRANDFATHER OF NERO.
