The reverse of a silver Roman denarius minted in 103 BCE. The coin depicts a battle scene between a Roman soldier (right), protecting his companion, from an attack by a barbarian warrior from the Ligurian tribe.
The scene refers to the account that the heroic Roman was the consul himself in 193 BCE – Quintus Minusius Thermus – who received corona civica for his act. The inscription: Q•THERM•MF is visible, i.e.: Quintus [Minucius] Thermus.
