    Julius Caesar. Denarius, 3.90g (9h). Mint moving with Caesar, 48 BC. Obv: Head of Venus right, wearing oak wreath and diadem, LII behind. Rx: CAE - SAR below trophy of Gallic arms, ax in right field. Crawford 452/2. Sydenham 1009. Sear, Imperators 11. Cohen 18 (2 Fr.). Very well struck; exceptionally nice. Mint State.

    The LII=52 on obverse apparently indicates Caesar's age, and so means that this type was struck after Caesar's fifty-second birthday on 13 July 48 BC.
