    Description

    Augustus (27 BC-AD 14). AR denarius (18mm, 3.80 gm, 5h). NGC AU 4/5 - 4/5.  Lugdunum, 15-13 BC. AVGVSTVS DIVI • F, bare head of Augustus right / Bull charging right, head lowered, IMP • X in exergue. RIC 167a. RSC 137. Cleanly struck from fresh dies and perfectly centered.

    The charging bull seen on this any many other coins of Augustus is thought to be a reference to his father's victory near the Greco-Italian city of Thurium over a rebellious band of slaves. Augustus was actually given the name Gaius Octavius Thurinus at birth to mark the event. The symbol of Thurium, seen on many of its coins, has a very similar charging bull.
