CCAESAR -Caligula the Seated Figure? First Radiate Living Princeps on a Coin?
Posted in the Archaeology Forum

Introduction: The purpose of this study is to identify the reverse figure on the consensv dupondii (See coin portrait on this page of seated figure of dupondius), struck during the reign of the Princeps Caligula. There has been much controversy over this reverse type, which, along with portraits in the round of Caligula, will be examined in some depth. Through numismatic, literary and epigraphical evidence I will study the seated figure, which has been traditionally accepted as Augustus, and not Caligula. Was Caligula the first living Princeps to be shown radiate on coinage and not Nero as commonly believed?
