Success (Bonus Eventus)

Bonus Eventus (the God of Success) was worshipped by the Romans among the other Dei Consentes, as a diety especially presiding over agriculture.

Hadrian, 11 August 117 - 10 July 138 A.D.

Bonus Eventus (Good Outcome) was a divine personification in ancient Roman religion. The Late Republican scholar Varro lists him as one of the twelve deities who presided over agriculture, paired with Lympha, the goddess who influenced the water supply. The original function of Bonus Eventus may have been agricultural, but during the Imperial era, he represents a more general concept of success and was among the numerous abstractions who appeared as icons on Roman coins. -- wikipedia

Roman Republic, Lucius Scribonius Libo, 62 B.C.

The ruins of the Puteal Scribonianum were discovered in the Forum in 1950's. The reverse is either a play on Scribonius' name or the origin of his family name and the Scribonianum were related. Perhaps he was also a music lover explaining the lyres. The same type was also minted with an anvil or tongs in place of the hammer. Sear indicates the tools are symbolic of the moneyer's position. -- Roman Coins and Their Values by David R. Sear

Crawford believes the lyres may be purely decorative and the tools, symbols of Vulcan, recall that the Puteal was located on a spot that was struck by lightning. -- Roman Republican Coinage by Michael H. Crawford
