Additional Notes: The Denarius was the standard Roman silver coin from its introduction in the Second Punic War (circa  211 BC) to the reign of Gordian III (238–244 AD), 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 (293–313 AD). The word Denarius is derived from the Latin deni (containing ten), as its value was originally of 10 asses. The word for “money” descends from it in Italian (denaro), Slovene (denar), Portuguese (dinheiro), and Spanish (dinero). Its name also survives in the dinar currency.
