He fought two major battles with the Vaccaei, killing a reported 35,000. (....) If the magistrate on the coin is the victorious praetor, his century old triumph over the Lusitanians was especially relevant in 81, for ir was among the Lusitanians where Sertorius found the greatest support.

Obverse: Helmeted and draped bust of Virtus right "VIRTVS" before and "III VIR" behind.
Reverse: Warrior, (Mn. Aquillius, consul in 101 BC) standing facing, looking right, holding shield, raising figure of Sicilia who is slumped to the left, "MN. AQVIL." on right and "MN. F. MN. N." on left (both MN in monogram). In ex. "SICIL."

Mn. Aquillius (the moneyer's grandfather) was consul in 101 B.C. and sent as proconsul to end the second slave war in Sicily. The slaves were under the control of Athenion, a Cilician, one of their commanders, who had already defeated L. Licinius Lucullus. Aquillius succeeded the next year in defeating Athenion and this coin type commemorates his valour (Virtus). The coin was minted during the famous slave war led by Spartacus, when Rome was trembling, which may or may not be a coincidence.

Mn. Aquillius was not so lucky after the defeat of the slaves. In 88 B.C. he went to Asia as one of the consular legates in the Mithridactic war; he was defeated and handed over by the inhabitants of Mytilene to Mithridates, who put him to death by pouring molten gold down his throat.

The temple was originally build during the time of the Kings; reportedly decided by Numa Pompilus himself, finished only in the founding year of the Republic under Marcus Horatius Pulvillus, on September 13, 509 BC
Destroyed in 83 bc and not yet rubuilt when this coin was minted.
