Publius Furius Crassipes (84 B.C.)
AR Denarius
O: AED CVR, turretted head of Cybele right. Long oval gouge and tool mark across Cybele's head (al marco weight adjustments).
R: Curule chair inscribed P FOVRIUS, CRASSIPES in exergue.
Rome Mint
3.9g
20.5mm

Publius Furius strikes here not as moneyer, but as a special issue in his role as Curule Aedile, hence the curule chair bearing his name.†

A really neat one. Not too many scooped coins out there it seems.
