Obverse: Head of Venus diademed.

 

Reverse: Aeneas walking naked, holding Paladiumin in his right hand and carrying his father Anchises on his left shoulder. CAESAR right.

 

(note: not my personal coin as I keep forgetting to take pictures but the sample is roughly the same as my own)

I'd love to see an uncirculated example of this one!

 

I usualy find the Roman coins to be of rather mundae design but I really dig this one.

I really enjoy the relationship it implies between not only Caesar and Venus, but Rome and Troy. See my blog entry for a bit more detail.
