488/2 #09242-39 M.ANTON IMP RPC Julius Caesar jug Mark Antony lituus Denarius

Denarius. late 43BC. 3.85grams. Cisalpine Gaul camp Antony mint. Julius Caesar & Mark Antony. Crawford 488/02 M.ANTON IMP RPC. Obverse: hd Antony r, lituus, M.ANTON IMP RPC. Reverse: hd Caesar r, jug, CAESAR DIC. Scarce. Very attractive toning, a pretty coin from a series that is often badly made, with Julius Caesar's head fully struck up and only a slight flatness on that of Mark Antony.

Dating and mint location as per Bernhard Woytek's, Arma et nummi, 2003
