Obverse Type: Caligula, with two attendants (the one on the left holds the sacrificial bull while the one on the right holds a patera, as does Caligula), sacrificing at an altar before the garlanded, hexastyle, Ionic Temple of Divus Augustus. A facing quadriga is placed at the apex of the roof, between two victories holding shields above their heads, and two male figures (Aeneas and Ascanius?) and a figure holding a torch. The pediment is decorated with Mars between four small figures.
