Epigraphic Parallels

I’m pretty confident we should see Divus Iulius on the reverse, not the young Caesar (Octavian):

RRC 518/2 – reverse legend reads POPVL * IVSSV

AE 1982, 00149 = CIL I2 2972 (cf. I2 p. 797 = VI 872 [tit. gem.] et I2 p. 798 = IX 5136 [tit. gem.]) cf. VI p. 4301 (ad n. 872) 

Mimicking language on restored tomb of Bibulus in the forum?
