Due to their low weight , I would call them small change pocket money.

Excellent group of protomoney, I have not seen anything like these before, great post Andres2
I bet @Alegandron and @rrdenarius will find them 'very interesting'!!
Hmmm, for some reason that old 'Laugh In' show comes to mind
I have a couple...
Oscan-Latin Aes Formatum shell 12.8g, 25mm
Oscan-Latin Aes Formatum shell with Ribs 4th BCE approx 25mm, 15g
ITALIA Aes Formatum AE Bronze Ax Head ca 5th-4th C BCE sextans size 44.8mm 56g
This would be roughly the size of a SEXTANS against the Libral Pound
I always wonder: They must have had HUMONGOUS vending machines in Italia with these old Aes Grave and Aes Signatum coins that they used!
I'm afraid that you would be ready to call protomoney any random fragment of some broken bronze item... I do not want to be rude, but one should still define where protomoney starts and where it ends, don't you think?
Separate names with a comma.
