Reverse: Temple of Jupiter Capitolinus: richly decorated hexastyle temple with three garlands hanging between columns; the pediment ornamented with armed figures; in the tympanum is a seated figure of Jupiter between two other figures; SF across field. The reverse of this coin shows the temple of Jupiter Optimus Maximus (the Best and Greatest) on the Capitoline Hill. While it has been suggested that Petillius Capitolinus may have chosen the design simply as a pun on his cognomen, it seems more likely that his family was connected to the temple in some way. The letters SF (sacris faciundis) indicate the Petillii were hereditary caretakers of the temple of Jupiter. Horace mentions a man of this name, accused of stealing the (presumably gold) crown from the statue of Jupiter, who escaped punishment due to his close relationship with Octavian.
