- n. A medal of large size. Some Greek coins of unusually large module are popularly, though incorrectly, so called: as, the Syracusan medallions. The pieces called by numismatists the Roman medallions are generally struck in copper, though sometimes in the precious metals, and bear a general resemblance to the sestertii or large bronze coins of the earlier Roman emperors; but they are often of finer workmanship than the coins, and are not inscribed with the letters S. C. (for senatus consulto). These medallions (the ancient name of which is not known) did not circulate as money, but were given by the emperors as presents to state officials and others. Their types are of a more or less commemorative character.
