You have won the debate by using evidence to show an emperor putting his name under someone of higher status, a god

But it doesn't make sense an emperor would put his name under a lower status person, a subordinate leader of a vassal state.

You won some points on a diversion into emperors associating themselves with superior beings, gods

However Juba II was politically subordinate to Caesar Augustus.

My mistake in this discussion was to talk about gods and facial hair, neither of which is pertinent to the topic.

So sticking to the topic

1) is this coin with Juba (IVBA) showing an a image of Caesar Augustus Caesar?
Maybe but you can't prove it.

If it's not Juba II then what did Juba II look like?

2) Juba II may have been a pure African or he may have had Phoenician, Greek or Roman ancestry as well.
He married a Greek woman and that shows he may have been from a culture that would permit that.

Do you agree on these two points?
