From the time of the Roman Kings!
In the early 1st millennium BC, most trade in Italy was facilitated by a system of barter, largely based on animals and particularly cattle. However, there was growing awareness of the utility of metal, and from the 8th century BC, small nuggets of bronze (Aes Rude – ‘rough bronze’) were used for the exchange of goods and services.
This Ancient proto-currency was part of the economic landscape up to the time the Roman Kings were overthrown and the Republic established, in the 6th century BC, and, indeed, well into the 4th century BC. A wonderful opportunity to own one of the stepping stones to Ancient Roman currency, we have 8th-4th century BC Aes Rude available at an irresistible price. Guaranteed as genuine, this is your chance to own a key piece of Ancient Roman history - buy now!
