Roman Republic, AR denarius, L. Procilius, 80 BC, Rome mint. Procilia 1; BMC 3147; Syd. 771; Craw. 379/1. 4.1 grams. Laureate head of Jupiter right, S.C. behind / Juno Sospita walking right, hurling spear and holding shield, snake erect before, L. PROCILI F behind. Well-centered AU with dark, deep toning. "From the types it must be presumed that the Procilia gens came from Lanuvium where the cult of Juno Sospita flourished. She is represented here in her militant character as the protectress against the danger of war." [Seaby, p. 84]
