Product Description

A spintria (plural, spintriae) is a Roman token, possibly for use in brothels, usually depicting sexual acts or symbols. They were only produced for a few years in the first century, between the years 20 to 40 AD, during the reign of Emperor Tiberius. The numbers I to XVI are known, but numbers exceeding XII are very rare. Experts cannot agree on the use for the Roman numbers. Were they the price for the act pictured on the front, or the value, or just a risque novelty item? We will never know for sure.
