Faces of Abacaenum

I’m really really into the aesthetics of the coins of Abacaenum.  The frontal to 3/4 profile faces are so beautiful and varied!




Is it Sol? Helios?  Apollo as sun god?  Or some one else completely different.  The catalogues like to identify it as female (often a nymph).  That’s not what I see.

I’m also concerned that the sow and piglet might not include a sow.  Where are the teats?
