The principal events commemorated by this denarius are the conquest of Armenia  by Antony in B.C. 34, his subsequent triumph at Alexandria, the honors he  conferred on Cleopatra, and the assistance which eh received from her in the  supply of the ships.Cleopatra was the last queen of Egypt. She is credited with having been the  mistress of both Caesar and Antony, her association with the latter is certain.  After the defeat at Actium she fled to Alexandria, where after Antony's death  she ended her own life in B.C. 30, being then in her thirty-ninth year.
