Quintus Pomponius Musa was a magistrate, moneyer and banker during the Republican Period in Rome, around 66 BC. He was a member of the Pomponia gens. According to the National Museum of Scotland, moneyers commissioned designs, which often referred to famous ancestors, associations to favourite cults, or, as here, puns on their names. Musa created ten coin designs: one design for each of the nine Muses, a play on Musa's name; and one coin featuring the image of Hercules with the inscription HERCULES MUSARUM (Hercules of the Muses). All ten designs depict the specific muse on the reverse, while featuring the image of Apollo on the obverse; Apollo presided over the Muses.

  • Quinto Pomponio Musa (latino: Quintus Pomponius Musa; ... – ...) è stato un politico romano. Quinto Pomponio Musa fu un magistrato monetario nella Repubblica romana, attivo intorno al 66 a.C. Era un membro gens Pomponia. È conosciuto solo dalla sua produzione monetaria. I magistrati monetari facevano riportare sulle monete vari tipi che si riferivano ad antenati famosi, alle divinità preferite o, come nel caso di Quinto Pomponio, era usato un tipo parlante legato al proprio nome. Musa, per la coniazione dei suoi denari, creò dieci tipi: un tipo per ognuna delle nove Muse, giocando sul proprio cognomen, Musa; il decimo denario presentava l'immagine Ercole e la legenda HERCULES MUSARUM (Ercole delle Muse). Su tutte le monete è rappresentata sul rovescio una Musa e al dritto è raffigurata la testa di Apollo, il dio che le guida. Un , cioè guida delle Muse, era situato a Roma, nei pressi del circo Flaminio. eretto da Marco Fulvio Nobiliore. (it)

When Hercules is represented, he is called Hercules Musarum, or Musageta, that is, "The leader of the Muses." He was known by this name in Greece, and later in Rome, when his statue and those of the nine Muses were brought from Greece, and the temple erected there for their reception. On other coins of Quintus Pomponius Musa the nine Muses appear arranged in the usual order, each distinguished by her emblem. The most distinct figure is that Urania, from the Greek Ουρανος; she points with a staff to heaven, as the Muse of astronomy. (en)
