With so much emphasis on the importance of physical fitness in both the Greek and Roman worlds it's no surprise the ancients left us such a bounty of booty, a treasury or tushies, a gluttony of buttony... enough with the hyperbole and on to the dairy air:

Of course we have tons O buns from the Greeks:

Though, much bigger prudes the Romans still left us a wealth of second shelf:

Might as well mention, Venus gives us a better view of the moon than Selene on many coins, particularly and most voluptuously on Julia Domna:

Lol :classic_rolleyes:

My Aspendos wrestler on the left is having a flatulence problem. Always embarrassing during a competition. 🤦‍♂️

Other than that I have surprisingly few butts in my collection... or perhaps you have surprisingly many @Ryro😳😁

I don't have that many different types of booty coins, @Ryro. I mean there's the requisite accumulation of Venus Victrix types:

And then there's the Three Graces, the center one of which faces away from the viewer. Not sure if these coins are particularly flattering to her, though.
