A History of Rome and Its Coinage

Legend says that the brothers Romulus and Remus founded the city of Rome around 750 BC. At first, the Romans were one of many cities vying for power in central Italy; but, after many battles, Rome emerged as the most dominant of these. By the end of the 4th century BC, Rome controlled most of central Italy; then, after the Pyrrhic War (280-275 BC), in which it defeated the Greek city-states in southern Italy, Rome controlled nearly all of the Italian peninsula.
