Obv: Head of Piety right "PIETAS" behind.

Rev: "M HERENNI" Amphinomus carrying his father right.  "R" to right

The story behind the reverse is of the brothers Amphinomus and Anapias of Catana (Sicily) carrying their parents from an eruption of Mt. Etna.  To bad the peoples of Pompei and Herculanium didn't remember or take the advise of this story.
