How can one tell if he is Romulus?

Romulus is a male, wearing clothes and not wearing a helmet. This coin copies the reverse of Hadrian with the reverse legend "ROMVLO CONDITORI". Thus we can deduce that this depiction is Romulus and not Mars or Virtus.

A nearly identical issue has the legend VIRTVS AVG. is there any other evidence this is Romulus besides lack of a helmet and similarity to the Hadrian type?
