L. Censorinus. 82 BC. AR Denarius (16mm, 3.99 g, 6h). Rome mint. Laureate head of Apollo right / Marsyas standing left, raising hand and holding wineskin over shoulder; to right, column surmounted by statue of Minerva(?) standing right.

From the Style Collection. Ex Numismatic Ars Classica N (26 June 2003), lot 1532 (further pedigree to Seaby FPL, October 1976, is erroneous).

“One of my favorite Republican types. The reverse is so reminiscent of Santa Claus as depicted in modern times. And the strike is always in high relief.” (From the consignor)
