Coins that portray actions of the Trojan war are always popular.  Alfred Bellinger wrote the definative work on this in "Troy the coins".  This huge 36mm diameter issue portrays Hector holding a shield and driving his chariot left.  As an added bonus, this reverse and even this size coin is not listed in Bellinger's book!  This a comparable issue is listed under his father: Macrinus.

Compare to this coin of Gordian III that realized close to $500: Triton V lot 1722

Rev: Hector in a chariot left holding a shield "EKTOP" above "[I]LIEWN" in exergue
