Description
Obverse: Helmeted head of Roma right, monogram behind

Reverse: Jupiter in quadriga right, ROMA below horses, L. MINVCI in exergue

The bust of the goddess Roma, with its winged helmet, is a popular obverse type during the Republican period. The helmet itself is reminiscent of Hellenistic and Roman helmets of the time period, categorized by scholars as the Italo-Attic type. Officers and deities are often depicted as wearing this helmet long after such a design had gone into general disuse. As such, it continued to be employed as a symbol connected with deities and heroic figures of the past.

Crawford 248/1. RSC Minucia 15. - (C.5382)
