Coin of Gaius Mamilius Limetano

Roman coin minted to honour the Mamilius gens, by Gaius Mamilius Limetano. The object is dated to the beginning of the 1st century BCE. The reverse of the coin shows the image of Odysseus, whom the family members considered their former ancestor.

Many Roman families acted in this way, wanting to raise their prestige and linking their lineage with the great figures of mythology.
