Note The female head seems very similar to that on 2807 (possibly even the same die??). The remains of the obv. legend suggest that the two heads are Gaius and Lucius, thereby confirming the identification of the head on 2807 as Augustus, assuming that it is correct to associate the two issues. This association is based on the stylistic similarity of the head on the reverse and the same very small module of the coins.
