POSEIDONIA - Lucania - Italia14 viewsAR Nomos (Estátera) 20.6 mm 7.37 gr

Anv: "POΣEI"(posiblemente retrógrada en campo derecho, en este caso ilegible), Poseidón avanzando a derecha, Clámide (Chlamys) flotando sobre sus hombros, portando un tridente horizontal en mano derecha y con su brazo izquierdo extendido.
Rev: "POΣEI" (Retrógrada con Σ acostada como M), Toro avanzando a izquierda con "Σ" (Recostada que parece M = Número de control de cuño ??).

Poseidonia fue fundada a finales del siglo séptimo A.C. por colonos griegos de Sybaris. En el quinto siglo A.C., Poseidonia fue conquistada por los lucanos. La evidencia arqueológica muestra sucesivas culturas griegas y oscas, que incluso prosperaron juntas. Después los Poseidonianos se unieron con Pirro de Epiro contra Roma, siendo vencidos por el Cónsul Publio Valerio Levino.
Poseidonia fue refundada como ciudad romana con el nuevo nombre de Paestum en el 273 A.C.

Acuñada: 420 - 410 A.C.

Poseidonia was founded shortly before 600 BC by colonists from Sybaris, and archeological evidence shows that they, like the Sybarites, enjoyed fine living.
The archaic style of the obverse remained even into the classical era, however this coin is quite rare in that Poseidon is facing left, rather than to the right as on almost all other examples from this city. The bull on the reverse, typical of the coins of Sybaris, honored the mother colony.
Poseidonia came under Roman control in 273 after the defeat of Pyrrhus, at which time the name was changed to Paestum.
