Coin (obverse), Denarius, of Quintus Titius

This silver coin was minted in Rome by Quintus Titius in 90 BC. It is a type called a denarius, the most common Roman silver coin. This picture shows the obverse of the coin.

The obverse depicts a bearded man, wearing a winged diadem. The identification of the man and his significance for this moneyer are unknown.

In the Republic, coins were minted in bronze, silver and gold, though gold issues were rare. The silver denarius became the most common coin after the mid-2nd century BC. At first equal to 10 bronze asses, it later was valued at 16.
