Tiberius. AD 14-37. AR Denarius (18mm, 3.74 g, 6h). Lugdunum (Lyon) mint. Struck AD 15-16. Laureate head right / Tiberius, holding eagle-tipped scepter, in quadriga right. RIC I 4; RSC 48. Good VF, toned, scratch on eyebrow, possibly ex mount.

Tiberius' reuse of this late Augustan type (RIC I 222; RSC 300), like that of the design for the “Tribute Penny” (RIC I 220; RSC 223) reflects an attempt to create a connection between his reign and that of his predecessor.
