Julius Caesar. 49-48 B.C. AR denarius. Mint traveling with Caesar in Gaul. Good VF, good metal and strike.

While the reverse clearly refers to Caesar''s status as pontifex maximus, the precise meaning of the obverse type is unclear. It has been variously interpreted as a general allegory of the triumph of good over evil and, in more specific terms, as a symbolic representation of the planned victory of the Caesarean forces over the Pompeians.
