Boar-Skin Headdresses

I feel for sure I’ve put this image next to the gem below before, but I wanted to make sure I have a note of it again.  (RRC 39/2).

Sard gem engraved with Faustulus, with a tunic, skin cloak and staff, finding the she-wolf and Romulus and Remus under a rock, above which is a tree and a helmeted head (?).

BM 1814,0704.1319

And for extra fun this coin of Hyria? Orra? Dated to c 210-150 by HN Italy
