Thayer's Definition
denarius = "containing ten"
  1. A Roman silver coin in NT time. It took its name from it being equal to ten "asses", a number after 217 B.C. increased to sixteen (about 3.898 grams or .1375 oz.). It was the principal silver coin of the Roman empire. From the parable of the labourers in the vineyard, it would seem that a denarius was then the ordinary pay for a day's wages. (Matthew 20:2-13

Vocabulary of the Greek NT

Ostr 1265.5 (A.D. 187) ἔλαβον παρὰ σοῦ ἀπὸ τιμῆς οἴνου [Κο ]λοφωνίου δηνάρια δύο ὀβολοὶ (l. ὀβολοὺς ) ὀκτώ . In Syll 869.14 (Imperial) θρέψει δὲ καὶ τοῖς υἱοῖς αὐτοῦ Ἀσφ [αλῇ καὶ ] Νουμηνίῳ ἑκάστῳ θρέμμα ἄρρεν , ἢ ἑκάστῳ αὐτῶν ἀνὰ δην (άρια ) ν ̄ : cf. Matthew 20:10 ἔλαβον [τὸ ] ἀνὰ δηνάριον καὶ αὐτοί . In his note on P Lond 248.21 (c. A.D. 346) (= II. p. 306) the editor remarks ";that the term denarius replaces that of drachma, which was regularly in use before the time of Diocletian; the Neronian denarius reintroduced by Diocletian being reckoned as equivalent to the drachma, and as .1/6000 of the talent."; In P Gen I. 11.14 (A.D. 350), according to the emended reading (Preisigke Berichtigungsliste i. p. 158), we have ἐπελευ [σόμενος ἐκτίσ ]ι τῷ ἑτέρῳ ὑπὲρ στροφῆς καὶ ἐπηρίας λ ̣ο ̣γου ἀργυ ̣ρίο ̣υ ̣ δ [ην ]αρ [ ]ων μυρι ̣άδας κτλ.
