Dinars in "The Fire Down Below"
- The word is derived from the Latin "denarius" which means "ten times" because the original value was ten "asses." An "as" or "assarius" was a bronze or copper Roman coin.
- Dinars were widely used in the Islamic wold in past centuries, based on the Byzantine denarius auri ("ten times of gold"). Dinar or denar is still the name of the main currency unit in nine mostly-Islamic countries.
- Although dinars are the standard currency of the Xenaverse, most Greek city-states, including almost every one that appeared, in fact used the drachma.
