About the Coin:

The face on this coin is unknown, but the coin itself, the denarius, was the standard Roman silver coin from the second Punic War to the reign of Gordian III. The word “denarius” is derived from Latin and means “containing ten”, as its value was ten asses, (plural of as - bronze or copper coin of the Roman Republic & Empire). The denarius was the precursor to the penny. Minted approximately 269 BC.
