363/1d L. Censorinus Denarius
L Censorinus Denarius. 82 BC. Rome Mint. (3.75g, 18.4mm, 3h). Obv: Laureate head of Apollo right. Rev: L CENSOR, the satyr, Marsyas, standing left with wineskin over shoulder; behind him, column surmounted by draped figure (Minerva?). Marcia 24. Sear 5, 284. Syd 737. Cr363/1d. Ex Warren Esty.

Alluding to Marsyas musical challenge to Apollo. Marsyas lost the contest, judged by the Muses, and Apollo flayed him alive for presuming to challenge a god. I love the mythical basis of this type.
