Poids léger. D’après E. Montenegro, le sextans ainsi que les autres bronzes de cette série, as, semis, quadrans, sextans et once sont de la plus grande rareté et s’intègrent dans un étalon semi-libral de poids romain (livre de 324,72 g) et seraient antérieurs à 211 avant J.-C. Avec ce type d’objet monétiforme on peut indistinctement évoquer un monnayage romano-grec ou gréco-romain.

Historical background

Geographically, in the Umbria region of central Italy, crossing the Tiber formed provinces of Perugia and Terni, corresponding to the ancient cities of Ameria (Amelia) of Arminium, of Iguvium (Gubbio) and Tuder (Todi). These cities are known for their cast mints, made between the first and second Punic war.
