Introduced in 309 by Constantine the Great, the Solidus replaced the Aureus and became the highly successful currency of the Eastern Roman Empire. It developed into the standard for international trade.
Until the beginning of the 12th century, it was considered the ‘key currency’ for all of Europe and the entire Mediterranean region and is also called the Euro of the Middle Ages.
