AVG above Ionic column, surmounted by statue, flanked by two togate figures The bust of the goddess Roma, with its winged helmet, is a popular obverse type during the Republican period. The helmet itself is reminiscent of Hellenistic and Roman helmets of the time period, categorized by scholars as the Italo-Attic type. Officers and deities are often depicted as wearing this helmet long after such a design had gone into general disuse by the military. As such, it continued to be employed as a symbol connected with deities and heroic figures of the past. The reverse bears a representation of the monument erected to L. Minucius Augurinus at Rome to commemorate his success in reducing the price of corn.
