This coin was struck during Scipio's African campaign to pay the soldiers under his command.
Quintus Metellus Pius Scipio, despite his illustrious name and the battlefield of Africa (upon which a Scipione was reputedly unbeatable), was just as doomed as the cause he fought for. Shortly after this issue was struck, the Battle of Thapsus took place, ending with the total rout of the Pompeians.
