Nero Claudius Drusus, often known as Drusus Senior, was the son of Tiberius Claudius Nero and Livia, but was born after Livia’s divorce and marriage to Octavian in 38 BC. Octavian, the later Augustus, treated him as his own son; he became a military officer and began campaigning with his elder brother Tiberius in Raetia in 15 BC. He married Antonia, the daughter of Marc Antony and Octavia, Augustus’ niece, and had three children of his own, Germanicus, murdered in 19, Livilla, the wife of Drusus the Younger, executed in 31, and the future emperor Claudius, who issued this coin in his father’s honor. Drusus Senior invaded Germany in 12 BC and was quite successful, but in 9 BC he accidentally fell from his horse and died from the complications of a broken leg shortly thereafter. He was not honored with a full triumph under Augustus, but he was commemorated by an arch, created from one of the support arches of the Aqua Virgo,which was probably set up shortly after his death.
