Metellus Scipio Consul of the Roman Republic from 49 BC to 46 BC.
Quintus Caecilius Metellus Pius Cornelianus Scipio Nasica was a Roman consul and military commander in the Late Republic.

During the civil war between Julius Caesar and the senatorial faction led by Pompeius Magnus ("Pompey the Great"), he remained a staunch optimate.

He led troops against Caesar's forces, mainly in the battles of Pharsalus and Thapsus, where he was defeated. He later committed suicide.

Quintus Caecilius Metellus Pius Cornelianus Scipio Nasica (yea his full name was that ridiculous) as Imperator and Publius Crassus Junianus as Legatus Pro Praetore

During the civil war between Julius Caesar and the senatorial faction led by Pompeius Magnus ("Pompey the Great"), Scipio remained a staunch optimate. He led troops against Caesar's forces, mainly in the battles of Pharsalus and Thapsus, where he was defeated. He later committed suicide. Ronald Syme called him "the last Scipio of any consequence in Roman history."

Roma Numismatics Limited has put forward the thought that it is Tanit in leontocephalic form instead of "Genius of Africa" and the "ankh" is rather the linear female abstract symbol for Tanit. I agree with the rationality behind this, because it looks everything like that symbol and nothing like an anhk, but include the standard attributions as we know them.
