Italy 50-CENTESIMI (KM61) Lions
The legend on this coin indicates that it pictures Aequitas, the ancient Roman personification of fair dealing, and equity. However, it is the ancient goddess Cybele who usually sits in a chariot drawn by lions, as seems to be the case on the coin. The worship of Cybele officially got under way in Rome in 203 BCE.
