On this coin you can see the Roman general Marcus Sergius. In battle he lost his right hand. In two campaigns he was wounded twenty-three times . He was twice captured by Hannibal but managed to escape. He fought four times with only his left hand, while two horses he was riding were stabbed beneath him. He was probably the first man ever with a prosthetic hand. What a guy ! This coin makes me think how many different brutal, bloodthirsty, cruel scenes there are on the reverses of ancient coins. Mine is number one M. Sergius Silus, denarius 3,84 g. 18 mm. Obv. EX S C ROMA*, helmeted head of Roma right. Rev. Horseman galloping left with sword & severed head held aloft, Q below horses leg, M SERGI below, SILVS in exergue. Syd 534, Cra.286/1.
