SIDA´REUS (σιδάρεος). Julius Pollux (9.78) quotes from Strattis a mention of sidarei as small iron coins current at Byzantium. None of these are extant, nor of the celebrated iron coins of Sparta [PELANOR]; but we have several specimens of iron coins issued in the fifth century B.C. at cities of Peloponnesus.
