Notes:     Marcus Agrippa was Augustus' chosen heir, adopted by the latter in 17 BC to ensure a smooth succession. Agrippa's prominence in political affairs was emphasized in 13 BC, when two of the three moneyers included Agrippa on their coin types. Succession was not to be, though, as Agrippa died the following year.
