Hecate or Hekate is an underworld goddess of archaic origin associated with magic, childbirth, nurturing the young, gates and walls, doorways, crossroads, lunar lore, torches and dogs. During the Hellenistic period, she appeared as a three-faced goddess associated with ghosts, witchcraft, and curses. Today she is popular with modern witches and neo-pagans.

Claudius was a capable, yet unlikely emperor. Before coming to power he was shunned as an idiot due to a limp and stutter. After Caligula's murder, the Praetorian Guard found him hiding in fear. He was expecting to be murdered but was instead proclaimed emperor. He governed well and conquered Britain.

Germanicus, Caesar, b. 24 May 15 B.C. - d. 10 Oct 19 A.D., Aezanis, Phrygia

Struck under Caligula in honor of his deceased mother and father. Trillmich identifies this type in his Familienpropaganda der Kaiser Caligula und Claudius with a male head left behind Germanicus. RPC I says this is wrong; a star is clear on the SNGvA plate coin. A star is clear on the SNGvA coin, but on our coin it looks like a worn laureate head left behind Germanicus. On some less worn examples online a laureate head left seems very clear! The RPC I plate coin (plate 130), however, has a lump due to die damage behind Germanicus. Is Trillmich's head left just a Rorschach-like interpretation of die damage? Probably.
