An attempt to reconstruct the image of Publius Quinctilius Varus, who commanded three Roman legions (XVII, XVIII and XIX) destroyed in the Teutoburg Forest by the Germans under the command of Arminius. As a result of the defeat, legionary eagles were lost, what was a disgrace to the Romans’ honor.
Varus himself committed suicide; his head was sent to Rome. Augustus decided to bury Varus in the family mausoleum. Face reconstruction was made based on the preserved images on the coins.
