Lightly toned. Obverse slightly off-center, otherwise, good very fine.

The emission came about after Julius Caesar's victory at Pharsalus over Pompey. In this battle, as later in Munda, "Venus Victrix" was the war cry of the Caesarians and Caesar praised in gratitude for the victory to dedicate a temple to Venus in Rome. Aeneas was the son of Anchises and Venus, his son Ascanius - Iulus is considered the progenitor of the Julians. Thus, the founding legend of Rome, symbolized by the palladium, is linked to the origin of the gene Iulia.
