My Top Coin: Coin No.11: Mark Antony c 33BC

Friend of Caesar, Cleopatra’s lover
1. Debased coins and the dubious XXX III Legion (33x5000=165,000 men
2. Some collectors look to find all his legions

BC 31 Roman fleets under Mark Antony defeated at Actium. Egypt now Roman province. Romans rule in Palestine until 478 AD
