From the Jonathan P. Rosen Collection. Ex Lanz 164 (23 May 2017), lot 114.

This issue commemorates the foundation of the Second Triumvirate, and was probably struck from the proceeds of the proscriptions in preparation for the campaign against Brutus and Cassius in 42 BC. Lepidus is shown with the title Pontifex Maximus, an office that he received after the assassination of Julius Caesar and held until his death in 12 BC.
