From the Londinium Collection.

The idealized head on the reverse has been variously identified as a deified and rejuvenated Julius Caesar, Augustus himself, or a male personification of the dawning Golden Age. The presence of a comet above the head, likely intended as the “Julian star” that appeared shortly after Caesar’s death, argues for the former identification.
