Roman Imperatorial - Octavian in the Philippi battle, silver denarius (3,50 g. 18 mm.) military mint moving with Octavian in Greece, summer 42 B.C. Mars helmeted bust.

CAESAR III VIR R P C, helmeted and draped bust of young Mars right, spear at shoulder.
S C, legionary eagle between two standards; above, trophy with oval shields. (Crawford 497/3; HCRI 138; Sydenham 1320; RSC 248).
Well struck and centered with a beautiful silver tone. A not very important oxidation cleaned in obverse, excellent example In an excellent state of preservation for this historical issue.

This coin was struck on the eve of one of the most famous battles of the dying Roman Republic: the Battle of Philippi, which saw the triumviral heirs of Julius Caesar (Octavian and Mark Antony) exact justice upon Caesar’s assassins, M. Junius Brutus and C. Cassius Longinus. The depiction of Mars on the obverse is almost certainly intended to represent Mars Ultor (“the Avenger”) invoked here as a sign of the desired revenge on Caesar’s killer and who was honored by Octavian in the aftermath of Philippi. The legends and reverse type also clearly identify the coin as belonging to the Caesarean faction. Octavian, the adopted son of Caesar, is identified only by the cognomen of his adoptive father while the distinctive Gallic trophy above the legionary eagle on the reverse is connected to the victories in the Gallic Wars that had made Julius Caesar so famous and powerful in life. These associations and the ability of the triumvirs to wield them made them powerful after his death.

Very rare coin, difficult to see in auction.
