Jupiter (mostly off flan) in a quadriga drawn by horses advancing to right, in his left hand, a sceptre; below, M. SILA; in exergue, ROMA
As is often the case, the identity of the moneyers of this issue are unknown. Crawford raises the possibility that the M. Silanus may have become Consul in 109 BC or may be the son of that man. Curtius left no other record of his career.
