    Description

    Unpublished?

    Augustus (27 BC-AD 14). AR denarius (18mm, 3.96 gm, 6h). NGC Choice AU 4/5 - 4/5. Uncertain Spanish mint (Colonia Patricia?), ca. 19 BC. AVGVSTVS CAESAR, bare head of Augustus right / IOVIS • TON, hexastyle temple set on podium of three steps; Jupiter standing left within, thunderbolt in right hand, scepter in left. Cf. RIC 65 (head left). Note - RIC 65 is extremely rare, with only one example found in sales archives and no mention of the same with head right. Although the tight flan causes some of the legend to be missing, there is no doubt with what is visible the reverse legend is described correctly. An exciting opportunity to own a beautiful example of an apparently unpublished Augustus denarius.

    The reverse probably shows the temple near the Capitol that Augustus dedicated to Jupiter Tonans, after his escape from lightning in 22 BC.
