Why add this ancient Silver Denarius of the Roman Republic to your collection?

Lucius Marcius Philippus was a moneyer for the Roman Republic 57/6 B.C., as well as step-brother to Augustus, the future founder of the Roman Empire. Moneyers were government officials responsible for design and production of the Republic's coinage. Designs of Denarii struck in the late Roman Republic were greatly influenced by the personal family histories of the moneyers. This stunning Silver Denarius was struck 57/6 BC in Rome, and has a weight of 4.04 g.

Exceptional commemorative design

The obverse depicts the right facing, diademed head of King Ancus Marcius, fourth king of Rome (642-617 B.C), with a lituus behind, and "ANCVS" inscribed below. Philippus claimed ancestry of his family from the king.

The reverse features an equestrian statue on five arches of an aqueduct, meant to honor the Romans responsible for supplying fresh water to the Republic. Inscribed with the moneyer's name "PHILIPPVS" behind, with "A-Q-V-A-MAR" between the arches.
