Etruscan Heracles

I saw the above detail from an Etruscan bronze in the Vatican some days ago and I know it reminded me of a coin and one specifically from Italy I’d seen in the ANS some years ago, but that coin doesn’t seem to have an on line image. Iris helped me find the type.

These facing Heracles on the coins of Populonia are unbearded. Memory is fallible.
