|GC Item Title:||Ancient Roman Imperatorial Julius Caesar, d.44 BC AV Aureus (8.12g) c.46 BC A. Hirtius Preator Pietas-Vesta/Implements NGC Ch AU|
|Description:||Choice Vesta Type Aureus of Julius Caesar.|
Cr-466/1; CRI-56; Syd-1017. Rome Mint.
Veiled head of Vesta (sometimes identified as Caesar) right with legend around; Reverse: Lituus, jug and axe with outer legend.
Boldly struck on a broad flan giving full legible inscriptions and nearly complete border beads. Pleasing original surfaces exhibiting a mild orange tone in the protected areas over better luster than is seen on most examples. Small as made planchet flaw on the back of the veil which shows toned metal within attesting to the untouched nature of the piece. Free of any heavy marks of contact or adverse handling. Certainly one of the nicest examples available of this sought after type which can make a solid cornerstone to a Twelve Caesars set.
