Northumberland Smyth 1856; Aurelia:

 

Obv — M(arcus) AVRELI(us) ROMA, inscribed round the galeated head of Rome. This is a serrated denarius, and is not of uncommon recurrence.

 

Rev — Mars in a fast-running war-chariot drawn by two horses. He is naked, with an ornamented shield on his left arm, which also bears a military lituus or trumpet, and his right hand is in the act of throwing a javelin. Under the horses SCAVRI, and across the exergum L(ucius) Lic(inius) Cn(eius) DOM(itius); the whole in compliment to the military virtues of the Aurelii.
