It was a gold currency, which Darius first devised.[1]
When Xerxes sent an envoy to him and offered him three thousand Darics, [Aristides] said that he had no use for Persian wealth, living the life he did. He happened to be serving low-grade bread.[2]
The army of this Darius was counted, and apart from the navy 700,000 were found together with the cavalry. Against the Scythians 600 ships were assembled.[3]
