Cr-443/1; CRI-9; Syd-1006; RSC-49. Obverse: Elephant advancing right, trampling upon horned serpent; Reverse: Emblems of the pontificate: simpulum, aspergillum, securis, and apex.

Lot description:


JULIUS CAESAR. AR Denarius (3.50 gms), Rome Mint; P. Sepullius Macer, moneyer, 44 B.C. NGC EF, Strike: 4/5 Surface: 2/5. Light Smoothing.
Cr-480/13; CRI-107D; Syd-1074. Lifetime issue. Obverse: Laureate and veiled head right; Reverse: Venus Victrix standing left, holding victoriola and scepter; shield to right. Emanating from the period just before Caesar's assassination--possibly by only a few weeks or even days--this example still retains a solid portrait of the "dictator for life."

Estimate: $1000 - $2000

Lot description:


JULIUS CAESAR. AR Denarius (3.90 gms), Military Mint traveling with Caesar in North Africa, ca. 48-47 B.C. NGC Ch EF, Strike: 5/5 Surface: 2/5. Graffito.
Cr-458/1; CRI-55; Syd-1013; RSC-12. Obverse: Diademed head of Venus right; Reverse: Aeneas advancing left, holding palladium and bearing Anchises on shoulder. A popular type alluding to Julius Caesar's fabled ancestry, this example displays fairly deep toning, with some minor, and rather typical off-centering of strike, as well as an "X" in front of Venus's head accounting for the surface designation.

Estimate: $800 - $1200
