A silver Roman Republican denarius, struck by the moneyer C. Vibius C. F. C. N. Pansa Rome, 48 BC. The reverse is Jupiter seated left, holding patera in right hand and sceptre in left.

Notes:

This coin is from a large issue for which there were 279 obverse dies and 310 reverse dies. The mask of Pan on the obverse is a pun on the moneyer's name; the representation of Jupiter A(n)xurus probably associates the moneyer with the town Terracina, about 60km south of Rome on the Via Appia.
