Marc Antony was a prominent Roman politician and general toward the end of the Roman Republic and was appointed Triumvir for Restoring the Republic with Octavian and Lepidus following the death of Julius Caesar in 44 BCE. During this period, the Triumvirs minted their own coins, each promoting themselves and their political agendas. Antony features his own portrait, together with his various titles on the obverse. Antony minted his coins from mobile mints while he roamed the empire with his armies during the buildup to the civil war between the Triumvirs. This coin can be dated by the reverse legend to 34/32 BCE, when Marcus Junius Silanus served with Antony in Greece and Macedonia. Katherine Brown 2011.
