Identification Help / Re: Who were that people?
« Last post by Jan P on Today at 05:25:46 pm »
Thanks a lot Shanxi, to find me that explanation.
The people of the British Museum must certainly know what they write.
I thought of the Roman Ioulian clan as a possibility.
IOULIEON is plural, so must count for the all clan (Caesar until Nero).
But finding this legend on coins of Traian and Antoninus Pius, who were no Ioulians, no Flavians but are counted under Adoptif Emperors and Antonine dynasty, I doubted that they would have such a legend on their coins.
So, the British Museum says: yes, they do!
Thanks again!

The British Museum writes:


Inscription transliteration: IOULIEON TON KAI LAODIKEON
Inscription translation: of (the people of) Ioulia and Laodicea ad Mare
Inscription note: the epithet 'Ioulia' is thought to be connected to the visit of Julius Caesar to Syria in 47BC when he bestowed honours on the principal cities

Identification Help / Who were that people?
« Last post by Jan P on Today at 03:30:22 pm »
Roman coins with Tyche on the revers, struck at Laodicea at Mare show often the legend "ΙΟΥΛΙΕΩΝ  ΤΩΝ  ΚΑΙ  ΛΑΟΔΙΚΕΩΝ" (Youlieòn tòn kai Laodikeòn).
So: Tyche of the Youliéans and the Laodikeans.

Who the Laodikeans were, is clear, but who were meant by those "Youliéans"?
A question I can not solve for a long time.

If I had to guess, it was plugged in antiquity to get the weight up to a normal solidus range so it could be spent.  But that's only a guess.  I think it was a function repair, not an aesthetics improvement attempt.
