Celtic Tribes in Thrace
Celts, Danube Region, Imitative of Thasos, Thrace, c. 120 - 10 B.C.

|Celtic| |Tribes|, |Celts,| |Danube| |Region,| |Imitative| |of| |Thasos,| |Thrace,| |c.| |120| |-| |10| |B.C.||tetradrachm|
This type was first struck by Thasos, c. 168 - 148 B.C. Roman authorities struck imitatives, c. 148 - 80 B.C., mainly in Macedonia. Tribal groups (mostly Celtic) struck imitatives from about 120 to possibly as late as 10 B.C.

Gbl OTA Class IIII is defined by a dissolution of the legend to illiterate imitations of Greek letters.
SH65452. Silver tetradrachm, Gbl OTA Class III; imitative of SNG Cop 1040 ff., VF, typical wavy flan, weight 16.190 g, maximum diameter 31.8 mm, die axis 0o, tribal mint, c. 120 - 10 B.C.; obverse head of Dionysos right, wearing taenia and wreathed in flowering ivy; reverse devolved legend, Herakles standing half left, nude but for Nemean lion's skin on left arm, resting right hand on grounded club before him, left hand on hip, blundered monogram inner left; SOLD


Celts, Danube Region, Imitative of Philip II of Macedonia, c. Late 4th Century B.C.

|Celtic| |Tribes|, |Celts,| |Danube| |Region,| |Imitative| |of| |Philip| |II| |of| |Macedonia,| |c.| |Late| |4th| |Century| |B.C.||tetradrachm|
Celtic tribes struck coins from the late 4th century B.C. until the late 1st century B.C. They were introduced to coinage by the Greeks, with whom the traded, and for whom they sometimes worked as mercenaries. Tribal coins often copied Greek designs, especially Macedonian coins from the time of Philip II of Macedon and his son, Alexander the Great. The copies tended to become increasingly abstract over time. The very nearly Greek style of this coin suggests it was an early issue.
GS95863. Silver tetradrachm, cf. Gbl OTA 2 (oK monogram vice K); Le Rider pl. 47, 23 (same); CCCBM I -, Pink -, Lanz -, VF, well centered, light tone, bumps, scratches, weight 14.260 g, maximum diameter 23.0 mm, die axis 0o, tribal mint, c. late 4th century B.C.; obverse laureate head of Zeus right; reverse ΦΙΛΠΟ (sic!), naked youth on horse pacing right holding branch, left foreleg raised, Λ over torch below, K lower right; ex JAZ Numismatics, ex Forum (2009); SOLD


Geto-Dacian, Roman Republic Imitative, c. 82 B.C. - 1st Century A.D.

In ancient Greek and Roman writing Dacus (plural Daci) and Geta (plural Getae) were interchangeable names for tribes of the Dacia region, distinct from but influenced by and possibly related the Thracians and Celts. Modern historians prefer to use the name Geto-Dacians.
CE68430. Silver denarius serratus, cf. Davis C52 and M166; for the Rome mint, C. Mamilius Limetanus, 82 B.C., prototype see: SRCV I 282, Sydenham 741, Crawford 362/1, gVF, weight 3.846 g, maximum diameter 17.4 mm, die axis 135o, tribal mint, c. 82 B.C. - 1st century A.D.; obverse bust of Mercury right wearing winged petasus, caduceus over shoulder; reverse Ulysses (Odysseus) walking right, greeted by his dog Argos, staff in left hand, C MAMIL downward on left, LIMETAN (AT ligate) upwards on right; SOLD
