Roman Republic, Anonymous, 209 - 208 B.C.
The Roman denarius was introduced in 211 B.C., initially weighing about 4.5 grams. The word denarius is derived from the Latin deni "containing ten," as its value was 10 asses, although in the middle of the 2nd century B.C. it was revalued to 16 asses or four sestertii. The denarius was the most common Roman coin for centuries but was slowly debased in weight and silver content until its replacement by the double denarius, called the antoninianus, early in the 3rd century A.D.RR72151.

Roman Republic, M. Baebius Q.f. Tampilus, 137 B.C.
An unusual coin because Roma’s head faces left instead of the usual right, it is the first appearance of Apollo on a denarius, and the positions of ROMA and the moneyer’s name are reversed. The moneyer’s purpose for departing from tradition is unknown. -- Roman Coins and Their Values by David R. SearRR97642.
