Thereafter the Kingdom had a troubled history culminating in the murder, by his wife, of the last ruler Rhoemetalkes III.

Son of Kotys and Sapaean, Rhoemetalkes had a long political career in the earlier part of which he acted as the guardian of the children of Kotys III. He became King of Thrace in 11 B.C. and remained a loyal ally of the Romans throughout his reign.

AUGUSTUS Victory Over Julius Caesar Assassins Brutus & Cassius Roman Coin i59169


Authentic Ancient Coin of:

Augustus – Roman Emperor: 27 B.C. – 14 A.D.

Reference: Sear GIC 32; B.M.C.5.98,23

Commemorates the battle of Philippi, 42 B.C., in which Octavian and Antony defeated the Republican tyrannicides Brutus and Cassius, who subsequently committed suicide. Augustus later settled the veterans of a Praetorian Cohort at Philippi, and he conferred upon them the right to mint coins, of which this is an example. The images on this coin presumably refer to the Emperor’s above described victory in 42 BC. The winged victory standing representing the cosmos. Such a coin is delivering, without words but in clear images that everyone would have understood, the message that Augustus now rules the world. All the old political institutions were re-established and the “dignity” of the Senate was restored, but actual power was now in the hands of one man alone.
