This denarius from the time of the late Roman Republic depicts on the obverse the head of Italia, the personification of Italy. On the reverse is an Italic warrior trampling a Roman standard; next to him rests the Italic bull.
The coin is a common issue of the Italic tribes that fought in the War of the Allies from 91 to 88 BC against the Roman state in order to gain full Roman citizenship. The most prominent group in that alliance were the Marsi, which is why the conflict is also known as Marsic War. The capital of the Marsi was Corfinium (today's Corfinio), where this coin with its deeply symbolic illustration was issued.
