Commentary


Pour ce type, M. Crawford a relevé une estimation de 92 coins de droit et de 92 coins de revers.
Ce type de revers fait allusion aux origines des Julii remontant jusqu’à Vénus par l’intermédiaire d’Énée. Quant à la lyre, nous pouvons probablement l’expliquer par les liens entretenus par la famille envers le dieu Apollon. Le magistrat est très certainement Lucius Iulius Caesar, consul en avant J.-C..
