Fun facts: A Roman foot soldier (legionary) received a payment of one third of one denarius to be put toward equipment maintenance and daily expenses. Equites (or cavalry who provided their own horses) were allotted one denarius per day for the care of their horses.

Roma, pictured on the obverse of the coin, was a female deity who personified the city of Rome and the Roman state at large. She appears on the base of the column of Antoninus Pius and is known as the patron goddess of Rome. She's been seen as a goddess, near-saint, and symbol of civilization itself. She remains the oldest continuous political-religious symbol in Western civilization.
