Coin (obverse), Denarius, of Titus Carisius

This silver coin was minted in Rome by Titus Carisius in 46 BC. It is a type called a denarius, the most common Roman silver coin. This picture shows the obverse of the coin.

The obverse depicts Juno, the goddess of women and childbirth. Here she is portrayed in her guise as Juno Moneta, as confirmed by the legend 'MONETA' behind her. The Roman mint was located in her temple on the Capitoline Hill in Rome.

The designs on the coins issued by this moneyer fall into two main themes. Some, as this coin, refer to his position and family, while others allude to current events.
