Marc Antony, as Triumvir and Imperator (43-30 BC). AR denarius (16mm, 3.67 gm, 6h). NGC Choice XF 4/5 - 4/5. Legionary issue, mint moving with Antony in Greece (Aegae or Patrae), 32-31 BC. ANT•AVG / III•VIR•R•P•C, war galley under oar right with triple ram prow and scepter tied with fillet / LEG-II, aquila between two standards. Crawford 544/14. Sydenham 1216. The legion possibly represented on this coin was Legio II Augusta, which was founded around 43 BC and swore allegiance to Octavian after the Battle of Philippi in 42 BC, and remained in his service through the Battle of Actium. Afterward it was apparently dissolved between 30-14 BC and soon after reformed as the new Legio II Augusta. HID05401242017
