Since Roman coins and systems of reckoning arrived in the wake of piecemeal conquest, the impact on indigenous coinages varied from region to region, ranging from the elimination of the native money, as in the case of the Celtic world, to its conversion into a provincial currency, as in the case of the Hellenistic East.
BC Apollonia and Dyrrachion became the first Hellenic cities whose coinages were attuned to the Roman monetary system.
BC, Hellenic coinages minted locally in Macedonia and Thrace under Roman supervision (alongside the denarii of the Roman Republic) constituted the currency used for the protection of the province, as well as the currency used by those who threatened it.
