Lucius Lucretius

Lucius Lucretius Trio was a Roman moneyer, who minted two denarii in c. 76 BCE.

His coin showing the laureate head of Neptune is in the collections of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.

The other has a radiate Sol (sun) on obverse and a crescent moon and seven stars on reverse. The stars are the Septem Triones (Ursa major), a pun of the moneyer cognomen.
