So I’ve never been really that in love with the Melqart explanation of this obverse.

Lenaghan L. H. – Hercules-Melqart on a coin of Faustus Sulla. ANSMusN 1964 XI : 131-149.

I’m more interested in how the FEELIX is juxtaposed with this Hercules.  I want to follow up on Sulla’s devotion to Hercules.  Here’s Keaveney in the 2005 edition of his book (orig. 1982):

And a link to that last citation.

Santangelo will have something smart to say on this as well I’m sure… I’ll follower up later.
