Notes:     The bust on this coin has been identified as Tiberius, Tiberius Gemellus and Britannicus. The RPC sites a number of reasons why the attribution to Britannicus is unlikely but does not discuss whether the coin may represent Tiberius or Tiberius Gemellus. David Vagi identifies it as Tiberius Gemellus as the heir to the throne and SNG Copenhagen accepts this attribution as well.
