E. Rawson, Historia 1977, suggests very plausibly that the head of Diana is to be connected with Sulla’s recent victory over Norbanus on mount Tifata outside Capua, which he celebrated by giving generous grants to the famous temple of Diana Tifatina.” – Crawford in his Edinburgh catalogue quoted by McCabe.

I am very struck by this interpretation and also think it plausible.
