Obverse: Head of Juno of Lanuvium right, wearing goat skin, I. S. M. R. behind.
Reverse: Bull charging right, E above, L. THORIVS below, BALBVS in exergue
The legend on the obverse stands for Iuno Sispes Mater Regina, indicating that Juno was worshipped in the city of Lanuvium as the protectress of women. This manifestation of Juno, also known as Juno Sospita, is frequently depicted as wearing a goat skin on her head. This obverse type is seen on the issues of a few other moneyers as well. The charging bull on the reverse may be a reference to a modification of the moneyer’s name.
