Roman Republic, P. Plautius Hypsaeus, c. 60 B.C.
|99-50| |B.C.|, |Roman| |Republic,| |P.| |Plautius| |Hypsaeus,| |c.| |60| |B.C.|, The Hypsaei claimed to trace their descent from Neptune and his daughter Leukonoe. This reverse type also appears to claim that the moneyer's ancestor captured Privernum in 329 B.C. We leave it to the reader to judge the validity of the first claim. As for the second, the victorious Consul at Privernum was C. Plautius Decianus, not C. Plautius Hypsaei.
