Roman Imperatorial: Julius Caesar (43-33 BC)


Julius Caesar, AR Denarius, 49-48 BC, Military Mint Traveling with Caesar
CAESAR
Elephant walking right, trampling Gallic war trumpet (carnyx)
(No legend)
Simpulum, aspergillum, axe surmounted by a dog or wolf head, flamen's cap
18mm x 19mm, 3.95g
Crawford 443/1; Caesar 49; Sydenham 1006 

Note: Seaby describes the obverse type referring to Caesar's recent victories in Gaul and the reverse to his office as Pontifex Maximus. Also note - the obverse artifact being trampled is still hotly debated today. Personally, I believe it's a Gallic war trumpet (carnyx), which ties in nicely to the overall theme instead of a serpent, winged serpent, horned serpent or dragon as is often attributed.
