    @Mat Great looking Denarius!

    I have a couple VERY similar by similar Moneyers' names:

    RR L and C Memmius L F Galeria 87 BCE AR Denarius Saturn harpa EX S C Venus Biga Cupid Sear 262 Crawford 349-1

    Mine are from 87 BCE Crawford 349/1... which spelled out L.C. MEMIES L.F - CAL in exergue;

    the Crawford 313/1 was L MEMMI - CAL in 106 BCE

    My pair show how different the same coin can be. The second is a classic example of the Stannard scoop for reducing the flan weight but has much less wear than the first one.
