This album covers the post-Second Punic War period where Rome, in her new position of influence, found herself in conflict with many neighbors around the Mediterranean. With the denominations largely set and the numerous mints of the Second Punic War rolling up into the main Rome mint with only sporadic minting in the field, some call this period boring. While it is true that for a few decades, much about the coinage is set in stone and formulaic, some moneyers begin experimenting with more personal designs and it is during this period that we see variety dramatically expand such that by the Social War, the set designs of a century earlier are no more and we see a great variety of customized, personal designs.
