Ab dem Jahr 194 v.Chr. erscheint als erste wagenfahrende Gottheit Luna auf dem Revers eines Denars. 157 v.Chr. wird zum ersten Mal Victoria in einer Biga dargestellt und nach der Jahrhundertmitte taucht eine wahre Fülle an den unterschiedlichsten wagenfahrenden Gottheiten auf.
Nicht nur die abgebildeten Gottheiten ändern sich, sondern auch die Zugtiere, neben Pferden werden nun Hirsche, Kentauren oder Ziegen verwendet.
137 v.Chr. werden dann neben den Dioskuren und den wagenfahrenden Gottheiten weitere Bildtypen auf den Denarreversen eingeführt; mit dieser Zeit endet auch die vorliegende Darstellung.
Diese Arbeit soll sich nun vor allem der Frage nach der Bedeutung dieser Darstellungen der wagenfahrenden Gottheiten widmen. Hierbei soll auf unterschiedliche Lösungsansätze eingegangen werden – Vorbilder für die Darstellungen, typologische Aspekte und schließlich die Bedeutung der wagenfahrenden Gottheiten.
