Laranda, Lycaonia, 4th Century B.C.
|Lycaonia|, |Laranda,| |Lycaonia,| |4th| |Century| |B.C.|, Gktrk identifies this type as issued by Laranda, Lycaonia, which issued coins with the same types. Most references attribute the type to an uncertain city in Cilicia and some to Tarsos. Laranda was destroyed by Perdiccas in about 322 B.C. and later became a seat of Isaurian pirates. This type was minted with a progression of reverses, first with an incuse square, then a square border of dots, and finally with a circle of dots. The original archaic punch reverse gradually evolved into a regular die, nearly identical to an obverse die. This variant was struck near the end of that evolution, perhaps for the defense against Perdiccas.
