Click title/picture for details. offer US $999.00 Octavian and Divus Julius Caesar. 32-31 BC. AR Denarius. Italian (Rome?) Mint. RIC I 257; CRI 401; RSC 61. Obverse: Bare head of Octavian right. Reverse: Mercury or Apollo naked seated right on rock, upon which is spread his clock, petasus (or shield?) slung on his back, holding lyre with both hands. CAESAR in left field, DIVIS (?) in right field. According to information printed in the Triton XI catalog 2008 (The Richard Prideaux Collection of Augustus, Part One, Lot 642) the collector Prideaux "takes exception to the usual interpretation of this reverse. First, this male figure cannot be Mercury, as the lyre would have been depicted as the one he invented - with a tortoise shell. In addition, he should be wearing either his winged petasus or his winged sandals, or would have a caduceus nearby. These symbols were canonical and easy to engrave. Second, the object described by many as a petasus is a shield seen at a 3/4 angle (cf. RIC I 250 where the shield is leaning against a column). On some specimens of this type, it is possible to see that the object is decorated. Warriors used to carry shields slung on their back after the battle, which for this issue would have implied Actium. The coin in the Triton auction (lot 642) which is in EF condition is estimated at $3000! Our coin is thus a bargain.
