L. Farsuleius Mensor, Denarius.

Roman Republic, L. Farsuleius Mensor, silver Denarius, Rome, 75 BC, MENSOR, diademed and draped bust of Libertas right, behind, S·C / pileus, rev. warrior in biga right, holding spear and reins, assisting togate figure into biga, horses below, XCIT, in exergue, L·FARSVLEI, 3.95g (Sydenham 789; Crawford 392/1b). Struck on a very generous flan and unusually complete, subtle iridescent tone, good extremely fine.

The warrior may be associated confidently with Mars, a god, who in this case is welcoming a human into his biga. Combined with the obverse image of Libertas the coin alludes to reconciliation, and the restoration of rights and liberties to Roman citizens after years of violent civil war.
