julius eclipse 40 bc.jpg

This coin was minted after the death of Julius Caesar in 40 BC. Note the solar eclipse symbol has been incorporated into the legionary standard. This is likely in reference to the 50 BC solar eclipse before Caesar crossed the Rubicon River. Marc Anthony and the emperors continued to incorporate solar eclipse symbols into their legionary standards. Photo CNG Coins
