Eumenia, Phrygia, c. 189 - 133 B.C.
Lindgren plate coin. Eumenia was renamed Fulvia, for Mark Antony's wife, probably on the occassion of Antony's visit east in 41 B.C. The city issued coins with Fulvia's portrait. She was the first non-mythological woman on Roman coins. Fulvia died in 40 B.C. and the name soon reverted to Eumenia. Lindgren attributed this issue to the 2nd century B.C. but a comparison of the female head to Fulvia is hard to ignore.
