about VF

Q. Sicinius was a follower of Pompeius. The rev. is full of symbolic: The caduceus stands for Pompeius' victory over the Cilician pirates and the free trade after their defeat. The palm branch symbolizes all his victories. The wreath seems to stand for the chaplet which was given to him by the Roman People (Mommsen, Rmische Geschichte).

This type has been struck at a critical point of the Civil War, late February or early March 49 BC, probably outside of Rome. Caesar has already crossed the Rubicon on January 1. Sicinius fled with the other Pompeians to Greece end of March. He seems to be the last Republican mint master.

scarce, about VF, dark brown patina

Pick: The image of the deity is despite its good preservation not identifiable for sure; Svoronos took the figure for female, I like Sestini held the figure for male. Wether the object on which his r. hand is resting should be a shield, is doubtful too; Svoronos thought it was a column. Sestini wanted to see a bearded (?) Ares, who was resting with his r. hand on a shield and with his l. hand on a spear. However a reliable deomination is impossible.

Hristova/Hoeft/Jekov calls the figure "Herakles". It can well be that the figure is not nude but has the lion's skin over his l. shoulder and the lion's scalp on his head.
