My earlier post on the coinage from the 1st Punic War of Suessa, Tium, Aquinum, Cales etc… is one of my favorites. I was delighted to have glass pastes connect me back to the topic with similar imagery. (Although I’ve not yet spotted one of these glass pastes with a star on it.)
Also on the symbolism of the cock see this post.
