Denarius issued by the Emperor Nero, undated but struck after the coinage reform of 64 AD, Ancient Roman Empire. Minted by Rome. After the great fire of 64 AD the Roman coinage was reformed, gold aureii were struck at 45 to the pound (had been 43) and silver denarii at 96 to the pound (had been 89). This coin, though bearing no date can be placed after the reform by its weight.
