Description

Roman Republic.

L. Livineius Regulus.

Silver Denarius, mint of Rome, 42 BC.

Obverse: Bare head of L. Livineius Regulus facing right.
Reverse: Gladiatorial scene. Charing lion being speared by a warrior in the foreground. Wounded bear to left. To the right, a gladiator, holding sword and shield, defends himself against a charging tiger, L•REGV[LVS] in exergue.

(Crawford 494/30; RSC Livineia 12).

Nearly Extremely Fine. Beautiful old collection tone. Somewhat off-struck.

3.73g.

This superb denarius depicts a violent gladiatorial combat scene – one of the few Roman coin types to do so.
