    This piece was minted circa 89 BC under the authority of the

     moneyer L.Titurius L.f.Sabinus. The obverse type depicts the head

     of Taitus facing right, with the legend SABIN behind. The reverse

     features two Roman soldiers, each bearing a woman in his arms,

     with legend L.TITVRI. in the exergue. This gens traced its

     descent from the Sabines, and perhaps from king Taitus himself,

     which accounts for the use of the head of Taitus on all of the

     types of this moneyer. The reverse type is a reference to the

     rape of the Sabines by the Romans.
