Check this time line for November 44BC. https://www.totallytimelines.com/oct...-63-bce-14-ce/ That's the year G.Julius Caesar was assassinated and Marc Antony was Consul (officially elected leader) of Rome. Octavian "relieved" him of that duty with the threat of his personal army. That was the coup. The battle of Actium 13 yrs later was merely the final stand of Antony when he ran out of bullets, so to speak.
Thank you! I learn more everyday.
