The Legionary denarii were struck by Marc Antony for use by his legions. It is speculated that they were struck with Cleopatra’s silver to fund Antony’s fleet against Octavian’s fleet. The Battle of Actium between Antony’s and Octavian’s fleet (lead by Marcus Agrippa) took place on September 2, 32 BC.
The Decisive battle was the Final War of the Roman Republic. Octavian later became Augustus the first Emperor of Rome.
