Tiberius Gemellus was born in 19 AD, son of the younger Drusus, was together with his nephew Caligula destined to inherit the throne after Tiberius� death. Caligula murdered him already in the autumn of 37 AD. �No certainty can attach to the reading, dating or attribution of the small coins which mention a Tiberius. (. . .) There is only a single obverse die: the inscription behind the head can definitely be read as TIBEPION, but the letters before the head are not clear, even on well-preserved specimens, since the die was damaged or broken. The two readings which have been made are CEBA or (retrograde) NEOT, and identifications as Tiberius, Tiberius Gemellus and Britannicus have been suggested (. . .)." (RPC I, S. 491).
