Abstract:

The chance discovery in 1991 close to the fortress of Hollm (SE Albania) of a coin hoard consisting almost exclusively of silver Aiginetic staters, contained in a bronze oinochoe of Rhodian type, pro vides an opportunity to examine our present state of knowledge about the issues of Aiginetic "tortoises" struck between ca 520 and ca 300 B. C. The 394 staters in the hoard attest for the first time the penetration of Aiginetic coinage in Illyria. To judge from its composition the hoard must have been hidden in the years around 420. A possible explanation for its unusual presence in Albania could be the diaspora of the Aiginetans after 432, when a group of those expelled took part in the foundation of Damastion (Strabo, VIII 6,16).

Source:

Bulletin de Correspondance Hellénique 122 (1998) 2 p. 511-527

Abstract:

A new study of the 87 coins (29 silver and 58 bronze) of Apollonia in Illyria which comprise the Dimalla treasure. The silver coins have as types a head of Apollo on the right and three nymphs dancing around the hearth of the Nymphaeon on the reverse, with names of mint officers (which are not those of the prytaneis), and having the same weight as the Roman denier. The bronze coins revert to the types that preceded the great 1st c. monetary reform, but with different mint officers, names and above all different weights, which are exactly the same as those of the Roman bronze coins, and probably struck at Corinth by the praefectus of Antonius' fleet, Atratinus. This shows that Apollonia created its own monetary system between 38 and 36 BC, adapting it to the standards of the denier and the new Roman bronze coinage.

Abstract:

The Kreshpan hoard, found in the territory of Illyrian Apollonia, includes staters and half-staters, with the pattern of the suckling cow, minted by the greek cities Korkyra, Dyrrachion and Apollonia and by the illyrian king Monounios, together with quarters of staters, with the pattern of Heraídes, minted by Dyrrachion. The ancient testi- monia about Monounios allow to date the burial around 280 B.C. The hoard leds to a reexamination of the chronology of the coinages minted by the Greek colonies in Illyria during the IV and the beginning of the III Cent. There are no drachmas with the same pattern, and consequently these coins were minted only after 280 B.C.

Abstract:

Near the modem Elbasan in Illyria, in a sanctuary located above the Via Egnatia, a hoard of 2,768 pieces was found. Most of the find consists of bronze coins of Dyrrachium, which represents all the city's monetary production, from the 4th c. BC to the middle of the 1st century. The largest issue, bearing a Zeus' head and the tripod, has been strike from the middle of the 3rd century until the end of the period. Since the names of 39 monetary officials are known, it is possible to recognize the dies' chronology. This hoard provides new information about the last issues of the city, between the civil war in 48 and the creation of the Roman colony. Finally, the hoard informs us about the travels on the Via Egnatia.

Revue Belge de Numismatique 158 (2012) p. 21-38

Abstract:

The Dyrrhachium drachmas, struck by the city for about two centuries, are an interesting coinage showing a remarkable system of control marks, whose study permits to make hypotheses on the organization of the city’s mint. This system of control marks will be the focus of this article. Two names appear on the obverse and reverse of the coins and different symbols are also applied. These control marks will be examined in order to show their function as well as the way they are related to one another. The study of the coins proves that the two persons whose names appear on coins play distinctive roles in the minting process and they have different responsibilities. Also, symbols are linked to only one category of names. Some important conclusions will be reached on the basis of the various observations made on the coins, and a new schema for the organization of the mint will furthermore be proposed.

Abstract:

The article examines drachms minted by Apollonia in Illyria with the device of a suckling cow. Two hoards are presented, from Jubica 1965 and Shkodra 1997. It appears that the figure on the observe is that of the chief official of the mint, who also appears on 28 of 74 issues together with colleagues (not prytaneis!) on the reverse. On the basis of these hoards it is possible to distinguish four periods: the first from ca. 250 to 168 ВС contains 27 issues, the second, from 167 to 120-100, 20 issues, the third from 120- 100 to 80-70, 18 issues, which circulated throughout the Balkans. The last 9 issues were minted up to the end of this coinage in 48 ВС.

Abstract:

Its contents 25 Athenian stephanephoroi tetradrachms (up to c. 96/5 BC [with a clear overrepresentation of the years 127/6-124/3 BC as it is usual for this area) and 23 Thasian type tetradrachms. The burial date seems to be close from the end of the 70's BC. Several similar hoards of the same composition and chronological context have been found in Bulgaria.

Abstract:

Ballaeus was a king attested on coins found on both coasts of the Adriatic; he minted his coins in more or less the same area where the Ardiaean dynasty of Agron had ruled in the second half of the third century BC. Hence, had he been documented in Polybius or Livy, he would have no doubt been called an ‘Illyrian’ king. He is currently interpreted as an Illyrian ruler documented solely on the coins. According to the opinion of majority of modern scholars, he inherited the kingdom of Genthius and ruled in the years 167–135 BC. Ballaeus can by no means be regarded as a successor of Genthius, who minted his coins at Scodra and Lissus; different centres of power clearly indicate two different kingdoms; Genthius reigned among the Labeates.

Abstract:

The careful investigation of newer or older collections in the inventories of prestigious public museums can still provide many pleasant surprises for the research field. It is the situation of this small hoard collection which appeared in the numismatic cabinet, after the serious analysis and reorganization proposed by the administration of Brukenthal National Museum in Sibiu1. Data on this discovery are extremely incomplete, only its possible source from Dobruja being mentioned. Accordingly, we will integrate it to the category of hoards having no specific place of discovery, Dobruja-passim. Generally, the few Dobrujan discoveries to be found in the numismatic collection of the museum in Sibiu do not specify the place of discovery, not to mention the possible complete contexts. We do not have any information on the presence of a vessel or the total number of pieces in this hoard. It is possible that it was fully recovered when purchased. Further on we present the catalogue of the pieces included to the numismatic collection of Brukenthal National Museum.

Abstract:

This article presents an overview of the classical and Hellenistic coins discovered at modern Risan in Montenegro, which is located on the site of the ancient Rhizon, in the Gulf of Kotor, the ancient Sinus Rhizonicus. These finds indicate a number of regional and farther contacts via land- and sea-routes from the 4th to the 2nd century B.C. and a dynamic life in Rhizon during this period.

Abstract:

There are two main types of the autonomous coins of Rhizon in Illyria, both of which have the inscription PIZONITAN on the reverse: the Post-Ballaios type, and the Apollo/Artemis type. The following analysis of the autonomous coinages of Rhizon is based on the information available from more than 100 specimens of both types. All these coins were discovered in Risan, as stray site-finds at Carine, the modern name of the site of the lower town of ancient Rhizon, except for one specimen of unknown provenance.

1st century B.C. drachms of Apollonia and Dyrrhachium in the territory of the Scordisci : a prologue of the Roman conquest of the Balkans / Dubravka Ujes-Morgan

Abstract:

Apollonia and Dyrrhachium, the two most important Greek cities on the Illyrian coast, issued drachms depicting a cow suckling her calf from the 3rd to the 1st century BC. Large quantities of these drachms have been discovered, both in numerous hoards and as innumerable finds of single coins, far from the cities that issued them, in the basin of the middle Danube, the homeland of the Scordisci, and further afield in Dacia and Thrace. A remarkable concentration of both hoards (more than 30) and single finds of these drachms discovered in the territory of the Scordisci represents an extraordinary monetary phenomenon deserving attention. The chronology of issuing of these drachms long remained unclear, but recent research by Petrányi (1995, 1996 and 1997), and Picard and Gjongecaj (1996, 1999, 2000 and 2000a), provided a clarification of the chronology of the final phase of their issuance. It has been determined that the massive output started only ca. 80/70 BC, reached its maximum ca. 60/50 BC and ceased ca. 50/40 BC. The use of this new chronology in examining the drachms present in the hoards discovered in the territory of the Scordisci requires a down-dating of their arrival in that region to the middle of the 1st century BC. Consequently, the interpretation of the causes of the massive inflow of these coins deep into the Balkan hinterland, into the lands of the Scordisci and beyond, needs reconsideration. Since it was the period of large military operations throughout the Balkans – the Mithridatic wars and the Roman civil wars – it is probable that various military payments, rather than trade, prompted a rapid transfer of such large quantities of these drachms into these distant regions.

Coins of the Macedonian kingdom in the interior of Balkans : their inflow and use in the territory of the Scordisci / Dubravka Ujes

Histoire & Mesure 17 (2002) 3-4 p. 7-41

Abstract:

From the expansion of the Macedonian kingdom during the reigns of Philip ii and Alexander the Great in the second half of the 4th century B.C. until its dismembering by the Romans in 167 B.C., the inflow of the Macedonian royal coinage continually played the principal role in the monetarization of the economies of the tribes in the interior of the Balkans. The objective of this article is to examine the emergence of this coinage in the territory of the Scordisci, a north-Balkan Celtic tribe, attempting to integrate the numismatic material into the study of the political and economic history of the tribes in the interior of the Balkans.

Recherche sur la localisation de Damastion et ses mines / Dubravka Ujes

Revue Numismatique 158 (2002) p. 103-129

Abstract:

The position of Damastion, a city founded around 420 B.C. by Aeginetans and Mendeans somewhere in Illyria, has still not been established with certainty. Strabo mentioned that its silver mines were famous in Antiquity (VII, 7, 8 and VIII, 6, 16), and its large silver coins may be found in central and western regions of the Balkans. Attempting to delineate the area in which the city and its mines may have been located, this paper examines topography of the finds of Damastian coins and compares it with the position of silver mines of the Balkan interior. И is possible to demonstrate that the coins of Damastion are most frequently found in the area of the rich silver mines of Kosovo, and hence to conclude that this city should be sought somewhere in that region.

The Second Syrian War and gold staters of Alexander type struck at Istros / Aurel Vîlcu and Emanuel Petac

Abstract:

In re-examining the entire series of Alexander-type staters from Istros (Price 961–969) we note that several control varieties still await confirmation (Price 961, with IΣ, and 962 with IΣ and ΔI). Recently, Price 963 which shares its obverse die with Price 965, was identified as an issue of a Seleucid mint; Price 964 belongs to the same group with 965; Price 966 (IΣ and M) has been confirmed by a recent public auction; Price 969 ( E  in wreath) is a misreading of Price 968 (IΣ in wreath). In light of this review, there are now only three groups of staters that should be associated with Istros: Group 1, composed of Price 964–965; Group 2, composed of Price 966–987? (IΣ with M or M monogram ?), which shares its obverse die with the first group; and Group 3, composed of Price 961 and 968–969, ( IΣ in wreath). Because of the die linkage and the representation of these three varieties in the Anadol hoard, it seems unlikely that they were struck over the course of the 25 years between 250 and 225 bc. Instead, it is suggested that the staters were struck over only a few years in the mid-third century BC, during the Second Syrian War.

Some considerations on Dacian gold coins of Koson type in the light of compositional analyses / Aurel Vîlcu ... [et al.]

Source:

Revue Numismatique 166 (2010) p. 297-310

Abstract:

This paper presents the results of analyses performed on 81 gold coins of Koson type found in Romanian public collections. The composition of the Koson type coins was compared to the composition of 42 Greek gold coins issued between the 4th and 1st centuries BC, three Roman gold coins issued in the second half of the 1st century BC, and a Lysimachus type 'tetrastater' from the medieval hoard discovered at Baia Mare (Romania). Based on the results, we developed a different hypothesis as to the origin of the gold and the places of issue of the Koson type coins were discussed.

Sur les statères en or de type Koson / Aurel Vîlcu

Transylvanian Review 19. Suppl. 5 (2010) 1 p. 199-213

Abstract:

The study discusses the traditional and the more recent theories on the origin, the purpose and the time of coinage of the so-called Koson gold coins. Given also the fact that recent findings indicate that the Koson type staters were coined in at least ten pairs of coins, the analysis leans toward the ancient origin of the staters, instead of their supposed medial origin. Because, at first (unlike in the cases of the sub-sequent Koson type coins), the title of gold used for the coinage of these staters was elevated and similar to that used in the West-Pontic cities, subjected to Burebista following his military campaign (which led to an influx of gold in Dacia, by means of poli-tical payments and victory spoils), we can presume that the first Koson type staters were coined in Dacia in a time of crisis, possibly around 45-44 BC.

Škudljivac redux : new data on IGCH 418-420 / Paolo Visonà

Abstract:

New data have emerged from H. Göricke-Lukić’s 2004 publication of the extant portion of the Škudljivac hoard, the earliest assemblage of bronze coins minted by the Greeks in the eastern Adriatic. Of the 55 ovestrikings in the original deposit (found in 1835 on the island of Hvar), only 37 have been preserved in Osijek’s Muzej Slavonije: 35 of them consist of issues with head of Ionios r. / Dolphin r. above three waves, and head of Ionios r. / Dolphin r., which were overstruck by Pharos following a pattern of obverse upon obverse, reverse upon reverse. Two additional coins, overstruck with a bearded head of Ionios l. and a lion’s head r. upon an earlier Ionios issue previously overstruck by Pharos (Osijek 2052), and upon a bronze of Pharos (Osijek 2093), may also belong to the Škudljivac hoard, as W. Kubitschek noted in 1897. Their dark green patina is similar to that of the other overstrikings. Since these two coins represent the last group of issues of Ionios bronzes, their inclusion in the deposit would indicate that the hoard was hidden after the Ionios coinage had come to an end. The single obverse die used by the Pharians to overstrike the Ionios bronzes appears on 30 overstrikings in museum and private collections that have close affinities with the specimens in Osijek. Some of them may thus also have come from the Škudljivac hoard. Its contents shed light on the dynamics of monetary circulation in central Dalmatia in the third quarter of the 4th century BC.
