Ancient Coins of Eumeneia, Phrygia

Eumenia, Phrygia was founded by Attalus II Philadelphus (159 - 138 B.C.) at the source of the Cludrus, near the Glaucus, and named after his brother Eumenes. Numerous inscriptions and many coins remain to show that Eumenia was an important and prosperous city under Roman rule. As early as the third century its population was in great part Christian, and it seems to have suffered much during the persecution of Diocletian. The remains of Eumenia are located in Denizli Province, Turkey on the shore of Lake Isikli near Civril.

Coins of Eumeneia from the Severan Period are quite rare. Most of the major museum collections don't have even a single example. The city also seems to have produced some quasi-autonomous coinage during this time. Our coin is not listed in any of the references examined and is likely unpublished and possibly unique.
