Denarii from the Roman Republic to Julius Caesar

Julius Caesar, Dictator 49 - 44 BC

During the civil wars between Caesar and Pompey, both commanders issued denarii minted by travelling military mints to pay their troops. Eventually the Senate had to flee to Greece and lost the right to issue denarii, though it retained control of base metal coins.
