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.
