Alexander the Great's empire split into rival Hellenistic kingdoms ruled by his generals. The most far-flung part was Baktria. Greek settlers ruled over a much larger indigenous population. As centuries went by, this isolated outpost of Greek culture combined elements of both Greek and native traditions, oftentimes reflected in their bilingual coins.

Founded by the Phoenicians in 814 BC, Carthage and its empire endured from the 7th to 3rd c. BC. Its far-flung trading empire included coastal north-west Africa, parts of Iberia, and many Mediterranean islands. Conflicts with the Greeks in Sicily continued into the 3rd c. BC, when Carthage also became embroiled in conflict with the new power in the region, Rome. Three major wars eventually led to destruction of Carthage in 146 BC.

Eastern Cultures


Empires or kingdoms located in the east, from the Greek and Roman perspective. The contraction of the Seleukid empire from its height of power in the 3rd c. BC led to a host of successor states, notably Baktria, Persis, Parthia, Indo-Parthians, Elymaians and Sasanians, Scythians, and Kushan (Yueh Chi). Many sub-kingdoms' histories remain unclear and much of the historical evidence is dependent on the numismatic record.

Coinage by the city-states often arose amidst conflict among Greek colonies, native Sicilians, and later arrivals, the Carthaginians and Romans. While Greek coin types and denominations predominated, the local litra and its fractions of onkiai survived until the Roman conquest in 212 BC, when local striking withered.

House of France (Capetian)The Capetian line of direct descendants and their cadet houses (Valois, Bourbon, and others) was long lived, providing the monarch of France and royalty in many, mostly European, countries. The Capetians, descendants of Robert the Strong, are known as the House of France. Their successors -over centuries- were junior houses that claimed descent from Hughes Capet.

KAR◇LVS monogramCharlemagne used a KAR◇LVS monogram as a 'signature.' Consonants KRLS are on the outside, vowels inside (A with a v-shaped crossbar, ◇=O, V=U).
Before Pope Leo III crowned Charles as Holy Roman Emperor on Christmas in 800 AD, Charles was known as Karls des Grossen or, in Latin, Carolus Magnus. As emperor, he became known as KAROLUS, giving his name to the dynasty that followed, the Carolingians.
