Commentary


Ce sesterce est bien en orichalque, du grec oreikhalkos, qui veut dire laiton. Ce métal ou alliage métallique est mentionné par plusieurs auteurs de l'Antiquité dont Pline. Le mot a désigné d'abord un métal précieux, puis des alliages du type bronze ou laiton. Le prix de la livre d’orichalque était de 3 deniers sous Auguste contre 2 seulement pour le cuivre.
