Augustus (27 B.C. – A.D. 14), Gold Aureus
Bare head of Augustus right 'AVGUSTVS DIVI. F'

Bull butting left 'IMP X'

Gold Aureus of Augustus struck at Luadunum (Lyons) 15-12BC. The charging bull is a reference to the coinage of Thurium (which used this image on their coinage) which the Octavian family had a connection to. Augustus's father (Gaius Octavius) defeated a Spartacist army near the city and the thankful city later granted Augustus the surname 'THURINUS' and this image is primarily a personal illusion to him plus an indication of this prowess and strength.
