Abstract:

Die Emission von Goldstateren, die im Jahr 196 v. Chr. in Griechenland für den römischen Feldherrn T. Quinctius Flamininus geprägt wurde, ist in zweifacher Hinsicht ausserordentlich. Einerseits trägt sie das erste Porträt, da jemals von einem lebenden Römer auf einer Münze erschien, und andererseits ist sie eine griechische Prägung mit lateinischer Legende. Sie entstand wohl in Chalkis auf Euboia nach dem römischen Sieg von 197 bei Kynoskephalai über Philipp V. von Makedonien und der darauffolgenden Proklamation von Korinth, die allen griechischen Städten ihre Freiheit wiedergab. Das völlige Fehlen von Silber- und Bronzemünzen mit Porträt oder auch nur Namen des Flamininus zeigt, dass die Goldemission eine einmalige Prägung darstellt, die zu Ehren des siegreichen Feldherrn erfolgte.

The city and the coin in the ancient and early medieval worlds / ed. by Fernando López Sánchez. - Oxford : Archaeopress, 2012. - (BAR international series ; 2402). - P. 103-113

Abstract:

'Nicopolis' of Epirus (north-western Greece), founded by Octavian to commemorate the Actium victory over Marc Antony and Cleopatra in 31 BC, was also known as “Actia Nicopolis”. Ancient authors’ reports suggest that the city profited from very special imperial benefits: a privileged administrative statute (as civitas libera and probably foederata), a pre-eminent political position in the Delphic Amphictiony and in the province (as capital of Epirus), a leading ethnic cultural role in western Greece (being populated through interregional synoecism), a strong symbolic meaning for the Roman policy in Greece (as the only proper Greek foundation of Augustus). Due to the strategic location, the city secured military control and provided economic support to the western coast of Roman Greece and subsisted on commerce, fishing, farming and stock raising. The coinage is still probably the best archaeological evidence of the city’s economic and cultural life, spanning from Augustus to Gallien with a large production of bronze issues and exceptional silver series under the Antonines. Further special features of the mint’s production are, above all, a large “pseudo autonomous” coinage and remarkable commemorative series in memory of the founder Augustus, which continued in production during the 2nd and the 3rd centuries.

The coinage of Corcyra under the Severans / Dario Calomino

Source:

Revue Numismatique 171 (2014) p. 429-462

Abstract:

This paper considers the civic coinage of Corcyra from Septimius Severus to Caracalla, proposing a chronological arrangement of the coin production in three main phases and providing a historical commentary. The analysis of fabric and style of the coins, combined with the study of dies, shows that a remarkable change occurred in the mint during the reign of Severus, probably as a result of the turnover of workforce within the workshop. The main bulk of output is represented by the coinage of Plautilla, which marks the transition between an earlier phase in which the mint seems to have been influenced by a Corinthian or Peloponnesian workshop and a later one which saw the employment of much more skilled engravers, probably in cooperation with the mint of  Nicopolis in Epirus.

Some hitherto unidentified Roman provincial issues among the coin finds of Nicopolis / Dario Calomino

Published:

London : Royal Numismatic Society, 2010

Note:

Offprint from: Numismatic Chronicle 170 (2010) p. 73-84, pl. 4-5

Abstract:

Some bronze coins found in the excavations of Nicopolis in Epirus belong to Roman provincial issues unidenti ed in the main numismatic collections. They were issued by Antoninus Pius and Marcus Aurelius but do not give the city name, so one is obliged to base the mint attribution mainly on die analogies or identities. Nevertheless, since Roman provincial coins usually had a restricted circulation area, they may well have been issued by Nicopolis or by another Epirote mint. This article compares the new excavation evidence with the collections coins to try to determine whether or not four hitherto unidentified Roman provincial issues can be attributedto Nicopolis.

Un trésor de deniers républicains trouvé aux abords Sud de l’ agora de Thaso / Julien Fournier

Source:

Bulletin de Correspondance Hellénique 133 (2009) 1 p. 257-271

Abstract:

The excavations in the Southern Approaches to the Agora at Thasos have in 2007 brought to light a hoard of 23 Republican deniers, the burial of which took place in 48/7 BC or soon thereafter. The discovery confirms the existence, from the Hellenistic period onward, of an occupation in the monumental complex that opens onto the agora to the north, to be related to the walls of fine masonry observable under the macellum walls of Imperial date. The publication allows reconsidering the modalities of the circulation of Republican deniers in Northern Greece and on Thasos during the 1st century BC: beginning at the time of the wars of Mithridates, well after the first interventions by the Romans in this region, it increased considerably with the Roman civil wars in the East. An important proportion of the coins in the Thasian hoard were struck under the authority of Pompey or that of Caesar, in preparation for the confrontation at Pharsalos in 48.

Source:

Revue Numismatique 160 (2004) p. 63-113, pl. 5-9

Abstract:

The coins minted by the cities and the Koinon of the Amorgians comprise a source of information of great interest for the economic and social conditions of the island. A small number of silver coins were produced solely by the mint of Aigiale at the beginning of the 2nd century B.C. Whereas, in Hellenistic times, short-lived issues of bronzes were produced by Aigiale as well as Arkesine and Minoa at the end of the 3rd / beginning of the 2nd century B.C. During the Imperial period, only Aigiale and Minoa minted coins. Both mints functioned during the reign of Caracalla, issuing a few bronzes for the emperor and his mother, Julia Domna. Minoa also struck coins during the reign of Elagabalus in the name of Julia Maesa and Julia Cornelia Paula. Considerably interesting are also the conclusions we have reached - through the iconography of the coins - of political connections of the Amorgian cities with great centres, such as Athens, Samos, Miletos, Rhodes and the Ptolemaic and Macedonian monarchies as well. It was determined that the numismatic activity of the cities was contemporary and that their production of coins probably coincided with the Rhodian domination of the Cycladic islands.

Revue Numismatique 159 (2003) p. 291-306

Abstract:

The hoard was unearthed in 1905 during the excavations of the French School in a house near the theatre on Delos. It consisted of 650 coins, one of them of Juba I, while the rest were Roman denarii. The Roman pieces can be divided in two groups, the first with denarii of Republican monetales, dated from 147 to 40, and the second, more numerous, with 604 coins issued for the legions of Marc Antony. This group provides the dating of the hoard to the period of the battle of Actium. The Delos hoard can be compared with other finds from the Actium area itself and Euboea (Styrra) which show the same composition. Such hoards are rare in Greece (in total, four) and must be closely connected to the movements of Antony's army in the aftermath of the naval battle. The composition of these hoards reminds us of another group consisting of Roman coins alone which have been found for the most part in the region of Macedonia. The deposition of all of them can be dated to particular military events, dating from 54 to 42 B.C., and they all consist of a very large number of denarii issued within the span of a century. The same conclusions can be drawn concerning the Macedonia and Actian finds. The denarii, coming to Greece in the hands of the Roman soldiers, went into everyday circulation through local trade and were then gathered by the local authorities in order to fulfil their obligations toward the state. In turn, Rome paid them back in order to finance her subsequent military enterprise. Thus, we find only a very small number of denarii of this period in local circulation.

This paper aims to discuss and analyse a sizeable, hitherto unpublished Roman Republican hoard of some 530 silver coins of the 2nd-1st century bc. Thus it will throw fresh light on the economic and monetary relations of the Thracian kingdom with late Republican Rome. Moreover, this hoard is linked with other numismatic evidence from Thrace as well as neighbouring areas.

Schweizerische Numismatische Rundschau 91 (2012) p. 111-177, pl. 8-21

Abstract:

In 2011 a hoard of 201 antoniniani minted between 219 and 254 was found in Eretria on the island of Euboea during the excavations of the Swiss School of Archaeology in Greece. Most of these coins belong to issues of the reign of Gordian III (238-244) and Philip I (244-249). This article first examines the coin distribution of similar hoards of the same period from the Balkans and Turkey and then gives a survey of silver hoards buried in Greece during the 3rd century AD. This revealed some interesting facts about coin supply in that region and shows that the silver coins circulating in Greece were replaced by new issues on a much faster basis than at the northwestern peripheries of the Empire.

Abstract:

The present article deals with the production and circulation of coins in the Peloponnese in the aftermath of the Achaean League’s surrender to the Romans, as well as during the Imperial period. In the first phase, which comprises the period from the middle to the Late Republican period and down to the Early Principate, the partial and selective operation of certain mints (silver and bronze coins) is most probably linked to military-political events during Rome’s expansion. Thus the local mints contribute each time that the Roman generals confront the last Hellenistic rulers of the East or fight each other in the internal Roman power-struggles which were played out on Greek soil. The coinage of the Peloponnesian cities of the Roman period, with very few exceptions which concern colonies founded during the Late Republican period, is largely inaugurated by Augustus and his dynasty. However, it had neither the same lifespan, nor the same starting point, nor was it uniform for all the cities. Special stress is laid on the circulation procedure, the characteristics of which differ radically between the two periods: the cosmopolitan polyphony of the numismatic horizon of the Late Hellenistic period becomes more introverted, while local values (Roman Provincial coins from Peloponnesian mints) or Roman issues in precious metals ['aurei', 'denarii' (plus 'antoniniani')] and heavy copper coins ('sestertii', 'dupondii', 'asses') play their role according to place and era.

Le monnayage d'Hadrien à Élis-Olympie / Franck Wojan, Michel Amandry

Revue Numismatique 170 (2013) p. 279-328

Abstract:

During the reign of Hadrian (117-138 AD), many cities in the Peloponnese issued bronze coins. The portrait of the emperor features on the obverse and a civic design on the reverse. Among those issuing coins were the Eleans (from Elis, Roman province of Achaia), who administered the sanctuary of Olympia. Although the volume of the coinage was fairly limited, it nevertheless offered them a means of promoting their artistic and agonistic heritage, with the urban centre of Elis itself associated with the prestige of Olympia.
