Researching today’s denarius, I didn’t expect to end up with goats, fava beans and biscotti. RR denarii haven't been easy to come by recently (at a price I am wiling to pay). I am quite pleased with this latest addition. Mn. Fonteius C.f., 85 BC, AR denarius, Rome mint Obv: MN FONTEIUS C. f., Laureate head of Vejovis (or Apollo) right; Roma monogram below chin, thunderbolt below head Rev: Infant winged Genius or Cupid? seated on goat, standing right; pilei of the Dioscuri above; thyrsus with fillet in exergue; all within laurel wreath Ref: Crawford 353/1a; Sydenham 724; Fonteia 9 Researching this coin followed a meandering path from "the obscure Veiovis" to "evidence for the goat as male or female" to "May as the month of ancestors" to "the Flamen dialis not being allowed to touch beans" to "biscotti in Italy today". The longer writeup with references is on my Notes site. As always comments, additions, corrections are much appreciated. There is no shortage of ambiguity about who is on the obverse and reverse of this coin - Apollo, young Jupiter, Veiovis, winged 'genius'? ...following the nicely written 2019 Koinon article recommended by CT member @SeptimusT - this remains indeed obscure to me. Post your coins of Mn. Fonteius, coins with goats, Veiovis, or anything else you find interesting or entertaining.
