Comments

The gens Lutatia was a plebeian family at Rome.

There is still some doubts regarding the use of Cerco or Catulus for this moneyer mark as both cognomen were in use at that time by the gens Lutatia.

RCV lists, under the same reference, the same denarius with moneyer mark VAR in monogram for Terentius Varro. (RRC#126/1, CRR#275)
