    One of my favorite coins, this reverse has each of Caligula's sisters holding a cornucopia, in poses that remind me of Three Graces sculptures:

    4b2 - Caligula AE sestertius.jpg

    GAIUS (CALIGULA) 37 - 41 A.D.
    AE Sestertius (28.56 g.) Rome c. 37 - 38 A.D. RIC 33
    C CAESAR AVG GERMANICVS PON M TR POT Laureate bust l. Rev. AGRIPPINA – DRVSILLA – IVLIA Sisters standing: Agrippina as Securitas holds cornucopiae; Drusilla as Concordia holds patera and cornucopiae; Julia as Fortuna, holds rudder and cornucopiae. In exergue, S·C. From the Gasvoda collection
