Roman Republican coinage
2. The denarius coinage

From about 211 BC, the denarius was the main unit of silver coinage. The  standard design of this coin features the helmeted head of the goddess Roma on  the obverse and the Dioscuri (the mythical twins, Castor and Pollux) galloping  on horseback on the reverse. In the early 2nd century BC, a new design was  introduced, with Luna the moon goddess (and later Victory) in a chariot on the  reverse. Gradually, increasing innovation occurred in the design of the  denarius, which reflected the influence of the moneyer.

At the beginning of the denarius coinage, one denarius was equivalent to 10  asses, and was therefore marked with the numeral X. Smaller silver denominations  were also introduced; the quinarius (5 asses, marked V) and sestertius (2.5  asses, marked IIS). After the Second Punic War, these denominations were only  intermittently issued during the Republican period, generally at times of  crisis. From the late 3rd century to c. 170 BC another silver denomination now  known as the ‘victoriatus’ was issued. This is distinguished by the image of  Victory crowning a trophy of arms on the reverse and was made of less pure  silver, possibly a response to the financial pressures on Rome at the time. In  141 BC, the denarius was re-valued at 16 asses (for a short time coins were  marked XVI), but the use of X was retained as a denominational mark and still  occurs (along with the use of a barred form of IIS) on inscriptions in the Roman  Imperial period.

The bronze denominations remained the same as those in the earlier period, with  a standard design of a ship’s prow on the reverse, and continued to be issued  until around 80 BC, although there were reductions in the weight standard. The  Roman use of the phrase ‘capita aut navia’ (‘heads or ships’), to accompany the  tossing of a coin, derives from this design (Macrobius, Saturnalia 1.7). The  obverse designs sometimes varied but those listed below occur most commonly:
