Antionia was an important figure during the reigns as Roman Emperor of her uncle Augustus, brother-in-law Tiberius and grandson Caligula. She was a younger daughter of Mark Antony by Augustus's sister, Octavia, and raised in the court of her uncle. She was married to her uncle's stepson, Drusus, by whom she had at least three children: Germanicus, Livilla and Claudius. Despite her non-attendance at her eldest son's funeral, murder by starvation of her daughter and general maligning of her youngest son, she was honoured with titles previously confered upon Livia twice - first by Caligula, then again by Claudius. Due to these honours, she appeared posthumously on the coins of her son, the Emperor Claudius.
