Ancient Roman Silver Drachms

This ‘provincial coin’ was a continuation of the Greek drachm, enjoying widespread circulation in Greek cities, even after such cities were subsumed by the Roman Empire. Indeed, it has been suggested by scholars that this bronze coin was equivalent to the Roman sestertius. Its production for practical purposes ceased under the reign of Commodus (180-192 AD), when it was subordinated to smaller denominations, such as diobols, and tetradrachms.
