Dupondii and Asi
 

A copper As was worth four quadrantes or two semis. A brass Dupondius (the same size as the as) was worth two asi.  Two dupondii (or 4 asi) made one sestertius. On the dupondius, the Emperor was shown wearing a radiate crown (representing the rays of the sun), as opposed to the usual laurel wreath, to help distinguish it from the similar sized (but different coloured) as.
