The host of religious implements depicted on the reverse of this denarius advertise the religious authority of Augustus, who took great pains to restore (sometimes going so far as to reinvent) the cults of Rome as a means of maintaining the pax deorum ("peace of the gods") or harmony between mankind and the gods. The simpulum was a type of ladle used to pour libations and frequently served as a symbol of the pontifices, the highest Roman priestly college with fifteen priests; the lituus was a wand used by the augurs, the college of priests charged with interpreting omens, while the tripod and patera are more general sacrificial emblems. Together they represent the emperor's preeminent position as Pontifex Maximus, the supreme priest of Rome.

Nerva's "Fisci Ivdaici" Sestertius: According to the Roman historian Suetonius: "More than any other, the Fiscus Iudaicus was administered very severely; and to it were brought, or reported, those who either had lived the life of a Jew unprofessed, or concealing their origin, had not paid the tax imposed upon by the people. I remember that it was of interest to me during my youth when a ninety-year-old man was brought before the procurator and a very crowded court to see whether he was circumcised."
