Epirote Republic, Epirus, Greece, c. 234 - 168 B.C.
In 232 B.C. the tribes of Epiros formed the Epirote League transforming the kingdom into a Republic. Over the next half century it was caught between the warring powers, Rome and Macedonia. In the Third Macedonian War, the Molossians split with the rest of Epirus and sided with the Macedonians. The outcome was disastrous; Molossia fell to Rome in 167 B.C., 150,000 of its inhabitants were enslaved, and the region was so thoroughly plundered that it took 500 years to fully recover.
GB34658. Bronze AE 15, BMC Thessaly p. 91, 51, aVF, Molossia? mint, weight 2.289g, maximum diameter 14.9mm, die axis 180o, obverse laureate head of Zeus right; reverse AΠEIPΩTAN, thunderbolt; SOLD
