The Triumvir, Octavian, Spring-early summer 36 BC. AR Denarius. Southern or central Italian mint. Bareheaded facing right, reverse Tetrastyle temple of Divus Julius: statue of Julius Caesar as augur standing within temple; DIVO • IVL on architrave (IV still showing), star within pediment, figures along roof line; lighted altar to left.
This denarius was struck in 36 BC, with the bust of Octavian on the obverse. The reverse depicts the unfinished temple of Divus Julius. This coin is a tribute to Augustus’ relationship with the late Julius Caesar. The reverse shows the temple of the Divine Julius, which though begun in 42 BC where Caesar’s was cremated, was not finished until 29 BC. The legend ‘Divine Julius’ upon the temple is bold and eye catching.
