NORBANA 2. BC. 83. Ar Den. C. Norbanus. Diademed head of Venus right, C. NORBANVS below, LXXXXVI behind. Ear of corn, fasces and caduceus. The reverse type is probably an allusion to the moneyer's father and the part he played in Sicily during the social war, when he raised troops, organised a fleet, and provisioned the town of Rhegium. It must have been a very large issue as the numbers on type 2 run from I to CCXXVIIII.
