    I was reading about the Sea Battle at Naulochus, between Sextus Pompey and my favorite Admiral Agrippa. I thought a display of battle leaders would be neat. Anyone have Sextus?

    Coins of Sextus Pompey show a portrait of his father (Magnus). Easiest to find is the as with Janiform faces of Pompey the Great.

    There are a couple denarii but all I have is this galley. I am not aware of coins with his name or portrait if they exist. That is a question for our Republican specialists.

    Some fun coins already!
    I wish I could afford a better Sextus, like one of those Neptune denarii.
    I gave this to my dad on Father's day:

    And I REALLY wish there were more Agrippa coins.
    Yes, Augustus owed everything to a name... and AGRIPPA!

    A Social Security Check will cover both.
