Denarius - Sydenham 828 - Crawford 419/1d

Sydenham tentatively identifies the obverse head as Roma; Crawford tentatively identifies obverse head as Venus, perhaps Venus Victrix; the reverse image is generally supposed to portray an equestrian statue of Lepidus, commemorating his bravery during the Second Punic War (see Valerius Maximus iii.1.1). Some specimens (not this one) also include the legend AN[[norum] XV PR[etextatus] H[ostem] O[ccidit] C[ivem] S[ervavit] (see Stevenson A Dictionary of Roman Coins p. 14).
