After the death of Pompey the Great in Africa, his sons fled to Hispania, where they knew they could continue rallying more troops against Caesar. Cnaeus Pompey, the elder of the two men, took the lead, and this denarius illustrates his vision of cooperation. On the obverse is the head of a Roma in her war helmet, and the reverse features a female figure – almost certainly a personification of Hispania – offering a hospitable palm branch to a Pompeian soldier with one hand, while ready with spears to assist the cause in the other. The anti-Caesarian forces would eventually be defeated in 45 BCE at the Battle of Munda (around the modern area of Seville, Spain), and Cnaeus Pompey would be killed shortly thereafter. KHK.
