Baktria


Baktria.jpg

Alexander the Great's empire split into rival Hellenistic kingdoms ruled by his generals. The most far-flung part was Baktria, his eastern conquests in what is today Afghanistan, western India and Pakistan. Greek settlers ruled over a much larger indigenous population. As centuries went by, this isolated outpost of Greek culture combined elements of both Greek and native traditions, oftentimes reflected in their bilingual coins.

Carthage


Carthage.jpg

Carthage (𐤒𐤓𐤕ē𐤇𐤃𐤔𐤕 in punic) was founded by the Phoenicians in 814 BC and its empire endured from the 7th to 3rd century BC. Its far-flung trading empire included coastal north-west Africa, parts of Iberia, and a number of Mediterranean islands. Conflicts with the Greeks in Sicily continued into the 3rd century BC, at which time Carthage also became embroiled in conflict with the new power in the region, Rome. This conflict led to three major wars and the eventual destruction of Carthage at the conclusion of the Third Punic War in 146 BC.

Eastern Cultures


Eastern_Cultures.jpg

This gallery covers various empires or kingdoms located in the east, from the Greek and Roman perspective. The contraction of the Seleukid empire from its height of power in the 3rd c. BC led to a host of successor states, notably the Parthian empire and its many vassal kingdoms, some claiming descent from the ancient Achaemenids. Among these successors: Baktria, Persis, Parthia, the Elymaians and Sasanians, Scythians, and Kushan (Yueh Chi). In the wake of Scythian invasions in the mid 2nd century BC, parts of the Indo-Greek Baktrian kingdom was superceded by Parthian vassals termed Indo-Parthians. Many sub-kingdoms' histories remain unclear and much of the historical evidence is dependent on the numismatic record.

Sicily


Sicily_Gallery_h.jpg

Greek colonies dotted the island of Sicily from about the mid-8th C. BC onward, sometimes conflicting with the native Sikels, Sikanians , and Elymians, and the Phoenician colonies. The largest issuance of coinage by the city-states often came amidst conflict among themselves and later arrivals, the Carthaginians and Romans. While Greek coin types and denominations predominated issuance, the local litra and its fractions of onkiai survived until the Roman conquest in 212 BC, when local striking withered. Major mints include Akragas, Gela, Himera, Kamarina, Katane, Leontini, Messene, Naxos, Segesta, Selinos, Syracuse, and the siculo-punic mints of Entella and Lilybaion.

Skythia_Borysthenes_Arrowhead_2019-11_bg.jpg
Skythia, Borysthenes.2 viewsSkythia, Borysthenes. c 500 BC. AE Arrowhead (5.35 gm). Anepigraphic. Arrowhead proto-coinage. Bilobate and axial spine. Green patina. / Proto-coinage of this type is known from the island of Borysthenes (Berezean) at the mouth of the Dnieper River and adjacent areas on the mainland. The arrowhead is associated with Apollo the Healer, the patron deity of Borysthenes, colonized by the Milesians in 7th c. BC. In the 5th c. BC, a competing colony was established at nearby Olbia, which soon absorbed them. Olbians worshipped Apollo Delphinos and minted the closely-related "dolphin money" in his honor. VF. Early cast coinage. cf. Sergei L. Solovyov, 'Monetary Circulation and the Political History of Archaic Borysthenes', Ancient Civilizations from Scythia to Siberia, Vol. 12, N. 1-2, 2006, p. 66, fig. 3.

Almost all the tetradrachms of Lykkeios are struck from the identical obverse die, with a distinctive raised square punch mark on the head of Zeus. This is possibly the tip of a punch that was sunk into the die to indicate the deepest part of the intaglio design. The die engraver failed to remove all traces of the punch.
