11. Daughter of Antony, the triumvir, and Cleopatra, was born with her twin brother Alexander in B. C. 40. Her early history till the time she was carried to Rome is given under ALEXANDER, p. 112a. She continued to reside at Rome till her marriage with Juba, king of Numidia, who was brought to Rome in B. C. 46, when quite a boy, along with his father, after the defeat of the latter by Caesar. (D. C. 51.15; Plut. Ant. 87.) By Juba, Cleopatra had two children, Ptolemy, who succeeded him in the kingdom, and Drusilla, who married Antonius Felix, the governor of Judaea. The following coin contains the head of Juba on the obverse, and Cleopatra's on the reverse.
