Marcus Agrippa was Augustus’ boyhood friend, lieutenant and and eventual chosen heir, adopted by the emperor in 17 BC to ensure a smooth succession. Agrippa's prominence in political affairs was emphasized in 13 BC, when two of the three moneyers included Agrippa on their coin types. Succession was not to be, however, as Agrippa died the following year.
