Q: Is Aes Grave coinage unique to Etruria?
A: No. By the 3rd C. BCE, many Italian mints were producing cast bronze coinage. Rome was the inspiration and, therefore, Volaterrae's Aes Grave issue may be regarded as derivative from Roman practice. [Crawford, Coinage and Money Under the Roman Republic, 1985, p.43]
