Denarius (plural denarii) is an ancient Roman coin made of silver.  The Denarius is believed by scholars to have been a Roman soldier’s daily pay. It was originally equal to 10 asses, hence its name.  The Denarius was minted from approximately 211 B.C. to 270 A.D. *

Diademed = Crowned with a Headband worn as a badge of royalty *  ~
