Roman Republic AR serrate denarius (19 mm, 3.50 g). C. Hosidius C. F. Geta, moneyer. 68 B.C. Rome mint. Bust of Diana right, draped, with bow and quiver over shoulder; behind, GETA downwards; before, III·VIR downwards. Border of dots / Boar right, wounded by spear and attacked by hound; in exergue, C·HOSIDI·C·F. Border of dots. Crawford 407/1; Sydenham 904; BMCRR Rome 3386; RSC Hosidia 2; Russo RBW 1455.

This moneyer minted two similar types in 68 BC and on both the obverse features Diana(the Roman equivalent of Artemis) and the reverse relates to the story of the boar that Diana sent to ravage Calydon. This is the scarcer serrate variety(Crawford estimates ~20 obverse and ~22 reverse dies total).
