Carthage, Zeugitana, 2nd Punic War, 215 - 205 B.C.
Most of the Carthaginian quarter shekels were almost certainly struck at Carthage and directly exported to Hannibal via Bruttian ports. Some rare examples, such as this coin, are of a different style and believed to have been struck in southwest Italy, probably in Bruttium. Hoard evidence indicates that the variety circulated at Tarentum, and issues began before 209 B.C.
