Crawford notes this type was issued with 12 different symbol pairs, each used for one month of the year. This bust was traditionally identified as Scipio Africanus but Crawford convincingly rejected that identification. The bust on the right is Scipio Africanus. Perhaps there is some resemblance that was the source of the tradition?
