Ex Superior 1988 Click image to view larger Description: Augustus AR Denarius. Rome, M. Durmius, 19 BC. CAESAR AVGVSTVS, bare head of Augustus to right / M DVRMIVS IIIVIR, lion attacking stag to left. BMC 63; Cohen 431; RIC 318. 3.77g, 19mm, 10h. Extremely Fine. Ex Bob Levy Collection, Leu 57, 25 May 1993, lot 219; Ex Superior, 10 December 1988, lot 2276. This type is another example of Augustus' desire to restore the semblance of Republican institutions. During this time there was a resurgence of individualistic family orientated themes on Roman coinage. This particular coin takes its reverse design from a didrachm of Velia, perhaps because the moneyer's family originated from Velia.
