Stratonikeia, Caria, c. 167 - 133 B.C.
|Other| |Caria|, |Stratonikeia,| |Caria,| |c.| |167| |-| |133| |B.C.|, Under the Seleucid kings, Stratonikeia was adorned with splendid and costly buildings. Later in the 3rd century B.C. it was ceded to the Rhodians. Rhodes seems to have then temporarily lost it, possibly during king Philip V of Macedon's Carian campaign (201198 B.C.), but it retook control of the place in 197 B.C., keeping it until 167 B.C. when the whole of Caria was declared free by the Roman Republic. From this point starts the city's independent coinage, which was to last until the time of Emperor Gallienus (253268). In 130 B.C., it was at Stratonikeia that the self-proclaimed king Aristonicus made his last stand and was captured in his failed revolt against Rome.
