The T. Carisius mentioned on this scarce and sought after coin relates to the Roman family Carisia who were influential in the latter half of the 1st century BC. Its most notorious member was Titus Carisius who defeated an area in Spain and was known for his cruelty. He has several types of denarii in his name. but all are scarce. The use of Victory. the goddess of war. on both the obverse and reverse is a pronouncement of strength and domination.
