A denarius (plural denarii) is an ancient Roman coin made of silver. Created in commemoration of Octavian's and Mark Antony"s defeat of Brutus and Cassius in 42AD.
The denarius was the standard Roman silver coin from its introduction in the Second Punic War c. 211 BC to the reign of Gordian III, when it was gradually replaced by the Antoninianus. It continued to be minted in very small quantities, likely for ceremonial purposes, until and through the tetrarchy.
