The quadriga, or four-horse chariot used in Roman chariot racing, was a type that was commonly employed on Roman Republican denarii. The quadriga was symbolically also the chariot of the gods, and on this denarius it is ridden by Jupiter, god of thunder and the skies, the chief deity of the Romans. He was the equivalent of the Greek god Zeus.
