A coin struck in 313, depicting Constantine as the companion of a solar deity

A jugate consists of two portraits side by side to suggest, to the viewer, the closeness of each to the other.

Often this would be a presidential and vice presidential candidates although sometimes a state or local candidate is included with a presidential candidate.[1] Jugates may be seen on medals, pinbacks, buttons, posters or other campaign items.[2] If a third candidate is on the item, it is called a trigate.
