M. Vargunteius - Monetalis of Res Publica Romana from 130 BC to 130 BC
M. Vargunteius was one of the moneyers for the year 130 BC. He is not otherwise known.

Not only is M. Vargunteius unknown - the entire gens is not mentioned anywhere outside coin issues. A gens could be as small as a single family, or could include hundreds of individuals. In theory, each gens functioned as a state within a state, governed by its own elders and assemblies, following its own customs, and carrying out its own religious rites.

In addition to denarii, M. Vargunteius issued specimens of the semis, triens, quadrans and sextans with M VARG, and marks of their value.
