IMP CAES -A naval trophy fixed on the prow of a ship, with spoils of arms also appended, and a rudder and anchor added.

This appears on a silver coin of Augustus, by whom, after the defeat of Antony at Actium, this trophy seems to have been erected.  Others think the coin was struck in memory of the naval victory gained by Augustus's lieutenant over Sextus Pompey, near Sicily.
