With this issue there was a dramatic decline in the output of coinage in Italy until the constitutional settlement in January of 27 BC. Over the three year period, between the autumn of 32 BC and the summer of 29 BC, Octavian had met the expenses of the Actian campaign, the conquest of Egypt, and the settlement of the legionary veterans. Octavian was now recognized as the sole authority.
