Roman Republic, L. Antestius Gragulus, c. 136 B.C.
|150-100| |B.C.|, |Roman| |Republic,| |L.| |Antestius| |Gragulus,| |c.| |136| |B.C.|, This was the first type to use the X value mark (ligate XVI = 16 asses).

L. Antestius Gragulus was a moneyer in 136 B.C., a magistrate, responsible for the production of the Roman coinage. Magistrates were not simple mint workers (monetarii), they were officials who controlled the process, including the design on the coins themselves. During the Roman Republic, moneyers were called tresviri aere argento auro flando feriundo, literally "three men for casting (and) striking bronze, silver (and) gold (coins)."
