Emperor Augustus died on this day in AD 14. This coin, struck c. 19 BC, depicts the wreathed head of Augustus on the front, and on the reverse a comet with eight rays and the words Divvs Ivlivs, meaning Divine Julius.
Caesar’s Comet was interpreted by Romans as a sign of the deification of recently assassinated Julius Caesar. Reported to have shone for seven successive days in 44 BC, it was thought to have been his soul.
