Anyone recognise this pre-1914 opposed twin?

A well-known German aircraft engine manufacturer copied it after they were banned from building aircraft engines by the
Versailles Treaty.

They built the first one in 1921, and called it the "Helios". It's obvious where it came from though, because of the blue and white badges on the gas tank.
