  • The dupondius was a large, brass Roman coin used during the Roman Republic and early Roman Empire. It weighed a little over 12.5 grams and was worth two asses, or little less than a sestertius. However it was often similar in size to the As and made distinguishable by way of the metal colour or imagery - The dupondius was usually issued with a radiate crown, indicating that it was worth double (ie two As).
