ROMAN REPUBLIC, Marcia - L. Marcius Phillippus. Denarius 56 B.C.
Obv: Diademed head of King Ancus Marcius right, lituus behind, ANCVS below.
Rev: Aqueduct (the Aqua Marcia) represented as an arcade of five arches surmounted by equestrian statue right, AQVA MAR (MAR in monogram) within arches, PHILIPPVS on left.
RCV I : 382 | RSC I : Marcia 28.

This moneyer was the step-brother of Octavian, who was just seven years old at the time of this issue. The reverse of this coin commemorates the construction, in 144 B.C., of the Aqua Marcia by Q. Marcius Rex, whose statue appears above the aqueduct.
