New Website Coming Soon

I am about to relaunch my website dadscoins in a few days. It will include coins of Tiberius Claudius Nero, later Tiberius Julius Caesar born 42 BC. Tiberius knew all through his own experience how well the wheel of fortune can turn. Born into a highly respected family his early years were spent as a fugitive. He served Augustus as commander and was involved in the battle at Actium, in the Spanish and Armenian campaigns. However upon the death of Agrippa, he was married against his will to Julia and forced to divorce his own wife Vispania.

He pushed Caius and Lucius Caesars for the ultimate succession. He went into a huff and lived on Rhodes in 2 BC to make way for the youths. It was to be Caius that finally succeeded Tiberius after he died on March 16th 37AD at the superb age of 78 He also is a recent addition to my twelve caesars collection.
