Zeugma was founded by Seleucus I Nicator who almost certainly named the city Seleucia after himself. In 64 B.C. the city was conquered by Rome and renamed Zeugma, meaning "bridge of boats." On the Silk Road connecting Antioch to China, Zeugma had a pontoon bridge across the Euphrates, which was the long time border with the Persian Empire. The Legio IV Scythica was camped in Zeugma. The legion and the trade station brought great wealth to Zeugma until, in 256, Zeugma was fully destroyed by the Sassanid king, Shapur I. An earthquake then buried the city beneath rubble. The city never regained its earlier prosperity and, after Arab raids in the 5th and 6th centuries, it was abandoned again.

How To Bid
||Register for a Forum Ancient Coins account - if you haven't already.
||Login to your account - if you haven't already.
||Learn about the seller - Read feedback and ratings left by others to assure that the seller is trustworthy. Forum bans sellers that have customer complaints, but it is still a good idea to check the seller's feedback.
||Know the details - read the item description, seller terms, and shipping charges closely. Sellers are required to accept PayPal (and you should only pay with PayPal), to guarantee delivery, and to guarantee authenticity without a time limit. Read the sellers listing for other terms and return policies.
||If you have questions - contact the seller FORVM AUCTIONS before you bid (click on the seller's username to send a message to the seller).
||Place your bid! Bid the maximum amount you want to pay for the item. Your bid is an automated proxy bid and the amount will always be kept secret. The program will automatically bid for you, the lowest possible amount (one increment above the next highest bid), and only up to your maximum. If other bids are placed before the auction closes, the system will automatically bid for you again, but again only the minimum amount needed, and only up to your maximum. If someone else bids more than your maximum, you will not be the high bidder; to win, you will need to place a higher bid before the auction closes. If you are the high bidder at the end of the auction, you are the winner. As the winner of the auction, you only pay the lowest possible winning bid, which may be less than your maximum bid.
