Coins were often pierced in those days, however the purpose may not have been to wear them as pendants, since the piercing (as in this case) was often made at the bottom of the coin design. The actual reason for such non-suspension piercing is uncertain. It may perhaps be associated with affixing the coin to a shrine as an offering, or for other religious intentions.
