The temple had been built in Tarraco in honour of Augustus, the first emperor, who resided in the city between 27 and 25 BC. The coin issue, minted in the third decade of the 1st century AD, is a homage from Tiberius to his predecessor.

Obverse: DEO AVGUSTO; Augustus seated facing left.
Reverse: AETERNITATIS AVGVSTAE C.V.T.T.; the octastyle temple.
