Summary (From the publisher):

During the space of a day in Rome in 1933, a ten-lira coin passes through the hands of nine people--including an aging artist, a prostitute, and a young woman preparing to assassinate Mussolini. In Yourcenar's brilliant evocation of the Eternal City, this coin links characters otherwise lost in private passions and nearly impenetrable solitude.
