Thracian Tribes, c. 400 - 338 B.C., Imitative of Chersonesos
|Consigned| |Returned| |9|, |Thracian| |Tribes,| |c.| |400| |-| |338| |B.C.,| |Imitative| |of| |Chersonesos|, This "barbarous imitation" was likely minted by a Thracian tribe living near the Greek colony of Cherronesos. Imitative tribal coinage such as this was common in the outlying regions of the classical world as peoples who traded with the ancient Greeks and Romans, also emulated their ways. The coin's simplified style is typical of such coinage. Tribal coinage has not been as well studied or documented and apparently no Cherronesos imitatives are listed in the references held by Forum.
