L. Marcius Censorinus - Monetalis of Res Publica Romana from 82 BC to 82 BC
Lucius Marcius Censorinus was a moneyer ca. 82 BC, and an officer, perhaps prefect of the fleet, in 70.

A denarius was minted by Lucius Marcius Censorinus picturing Apollo and Marsyas the satyr. This coin has attracted several interpretations because of the ambiguity of its symbolism.

The symbolism may refer to the moneyer’s family line, the gens Marcia, who claimed legendary descent from Marsyas. It may also be connected to the Social Wars - Marsyas was regarded as a symbol of political freedom, particularly free speech. The image of Apollo on the coin may refer to the plague of 87 BC.
