Remembering though the Coinage

Look familiar?  Of course it does!  RRC 509/5 is a perfect example of the way in which coin images a huge staying power and can be resurrected after centuries to evoke connections between events/places/people.  The inspiration is one of the many representations of same goddess (likely Tanit, but perhaps seen by some as Demeter, or other name for the mother/fertility/argiculture goddess) on the coinage of Carthage.
