Septimius Severus
193 - 211 AD
Limes Denarius

The origin and purpose of the bronze `limes` denarii is uncertain. They may have been a token currency used only along the borders of the Empire to pay the soldiers without risking large amounts of silver to enemy barbarians. It is speculated that the soldiers could then trade them in for real siver denarii when they returned to Rome or to safer areas within the Empire.
