Natta

4. NATTA, a person satirised by Horace (Sat. 1.6. 124) for his dirty meanness, was probably a member of the noble Pinarian family, and therefore attacked by Horace for such conduct.

The coin annexed refers to some Pinarius Natta, but who he was is quite uncertain. The obverse represents a winged head of Pallas, the reverse Victory in a chariot drawn by two horses.
