Roman Military in Macedonia, c. 168 B.C., Imitative of Type from Histiaia, North Euboea, Greece
Sear notes crude Histiaia imitations seem to have been struck in Macedonia just prior to the Roman victory in 168 B.C. During the Republic, Roman military mints sometimes struck imitative types to make local payments. Examples include Thasian imitatives in Macedonia and Philip Philadelphos imitatives at Antioch. This Histiaia type tetrobol is almost certainly one of the imitatives struck in Macedonia by the Roman military.
