Seller's Note/ As we think that collecting ancient coins should be a learning experience and NOT just spending your hard-earned cash, you may wonder about the reverse legend XV VIR SACR FAC? Basically he is referring to and reminding the Roman citizens as to his past appointment to the college of 15 Chief Roman priests...not that it did him any good. Rare coin!
