Roman Republic, 99 - 50 B.C.
Roman Republic, L. Papius, 79 B.C.

|99-50| |B.C.|, |Roman| |Republic,| |L.| |Papius,| |79| |B.C.||denarius| |serratus|
In Roman Republican Coinage, Michael Crawford notes, "The control marks on this type are normally paired related symbols. Each pair has only one set of dies." In Roman Silver Coins, H.A. Seaby writes there are at least 235 pairs and "They are well executed and cover the whole rang of Roman life and industry, etc., and are of great interest to the antiquarian. They are mostly symbolic of the various trade-guilds." In Coin of the Roman Republic in the British Museum (BMCRR I), H. Grueber describes the bird on the reverse as a crow. We think it is an eagle. The owl is the bird of Athena, the crow (or raven) is the bird of Apollo, and the eagle is the bird of Zeus.

Gaius Cassius Longinus (before 85 B.C. - October 42 B.C.) was a Roman senator, the prime mover in the conspiracy against Julius Caesar, and the brother in-law of Brutus.
RR86478.

|99-50| |B.C.|, |Roman| |Republic,| |First| |Triumvirate,| |P.| |Fonteius| |P.f.| |Capito,| |55| |B.C.||denarius|
The moneyer was likely a nephew of Manius Fonteius and possibly a friend of Cicero. The reverse probably depicts the exploits of his uncle while governor of Narbonese Gaul, 76 - 73 B.C. His uncle was also a moneyer, striking c. 85 B.C.

Geto-Dacian, Roman Republic Imitative, c. 82 B.C. - 1st Century A.D.

In ancient Greek and Roman writing Dacus (plural Daci) and Geta (plural Getae) were interchangeable names for tribes of the Dacia region, distinct from but influenced by and possibly related the Thracians and Celts. Modern historians prefer to use the name Geto-Dacians.
CE68430. Silver denarius serratus, cf. Davis C52 and M166; for the Rome mint, C.
