The 14th tribunica potestas of Claudius started on the 25th of January; he was murdered on the 13th of October in the same year. Consequently, this coin which is dedicated to both Caesars of Claudius, to Britannicus (son of Claudius and Messalina, Caesar since autumn 43) and Nero (son of Claudius’s wife Agrippina, Caesar since February 50), was minted between January and October 54.
