Obverse translation : “Sabinus”, (Sabinus).

Reverse


Reverse legend : L. TITVRI À L’EXERGUE.
Reverse description : Tarpeia agenouillée de face entre deux soldats qui lui jettent leurs boucliers ; au-dessus, une étoile placée au-dessus d’un croissant.
Reverse translation : “Lucius Titurius”, (Lucius Titurius).

Commentary


Le revers commémore l’exécution de Tarpeia. Pour ce type, M. Crawford a relevé une estimation de 294 coins de droit et de 327 coins de revers. Ce type de la mort de Tarpeia semble moins courant que celui de l’enlèvement des Sabines.

Historical background
