MVCIA. A plebian family. The surname Cordus.----The only coin attributed to it is one, respecting which it holds a contested claim for, with the Fufia family. The denarius in question has on its obverse KALENI, with two jugate heads, one juvenile and laureate, near which are the letters HO; and the other juvenile and helmeted, near which is the word VIRT.----Eckhel remarks that the Mucia family was equally worthy with the Fufia to claim the distinction of Honor and Virtus, by adorning their medal with the heads of those favourite Roman divinities. This silver coin is rare. That in gold is pronounced by Mionnet to be false.
