Abstract:

We publish a lot of 49 small silver fractions acquired in 1973 by Mr. Terseleer (Brussels). Most of these fractions (43 obols and 4 hemiobols) were issued by the mint of Selge (Pisidia) while one is given to Side (Pamphylia) and a last one seems to be unpublished. We may divide these obols from Selge in 3 groups with a difference of weights between groups 1-2 and 3. The same difference may be observed for the die-axis which are loose for groups 1-2 and fixed (12h) for group 3.

Abstract:

This paper starts with a die-study (19 coins instead of the 7 previously known, among which 3 overstruck) of the coinage with the name TERSIKON and the aramaci legend 'Cilicia' which is generally given to Pharnabazos at Tarsus. We then discuss the full coinage attributed to Pharnabazos and Datames/Tarkumuwa putting their volumes into perspective with the Hecatomnid coinages of Mausolos and Idrieus. The core of the paper is about the many countermarks found on Cilican as well as on Pamphylian staters of the beginning of the 4th c. BCE. We give a long list of 287 specimens detailing for each which kind of countermark(s) and on which isssue of which mint (Selge, Aspendos, Side, Nagidos, Kelenderis, Holmoi, Soloi, Tarsus, Mallos, Issos and even Lapethos on Cyprus). Since it is likely that each of these countermarks was applied at the same time and place, each could be taken as the equivalent of a virtual hoard, giving precious information about what then circulated. The countermak with a bull has been struck on coins from 11 different mints. Accepted chronologies must be adapted to this crucial evidence Many issues dated ca. 350 BCE have in fact been produced before 370 BCE. Many countermarked coins are die-linked prompting the idea that countermaks were applied soon after strike. It turns put that the 4 overstrikes we do have for the coinage of Pharnabazos and Tarkumuwa are all on the same obverse die (out of more than 600). And the four coins have been cointermarked with the bull to r. It is also likely that several coinagesq were produced at the same place.

Abstract:

D. Schlumberger argued that the siglos was unimportant in the currency of the Persian Empire until 425 B.C. and then only secondary. The survey of Cilician coin hoards allows to change slightly this guess. The Persian siglos is in the minority during the most part of the 5th C. among coins of different origins ; then, under the influence of the Cypriot issues, the Cilician mints begin striking on a standard derived from the siglos and next the coins dominate though Athenian and Sinopean coins arrive. The Achaemenid influence will be felt especially in the western part of the area and the production increases continuously. Alexander's conquest disrupts the monetary local uses and the coins of Attic standard have a major role for a long time.

Abstract:

The Severan emperors had a close relationship with the Cilician seaport Aegeae. Nevertheless, a visit of Caracalla on his Parthian campaign in 215 could not yet be proved - although this assumption has generally been accepted by scholars. A new pseudoautonomous tetradrachm, struck between November 216 and April 217 is introduced. In connection with a previously unpublished bronze, depicting a donation of the city, an imperial visit in spring 216 is rendered plausible.

Abstract:

Since 2005, Hadrianic silver coins from Cilician Aegeae have repeatedly appeared on the numismatic market. This made us reconsider the importance of the seaport in Roman times. Until now only coins dating from 117/118 A.D. to 133/4 were known. Recently, a tridrachm from 116/117 occurred. This coin must have been struck between early October and the very beginning of November while Hadrian was on his way to Cappadocia. It should – in the context of the subsequent coinage – be regarded as an indication for Aegeae’s promotion to a naval base under Hadrian.

Proceedings of the XIVth International Numismatic Congress, Glasgow 2009. II / ed. by Nicholas Holmes. - Glasgow : International Numismatic Council. 2011. – P. 720-725

Abstract:

Under Trajan well-established mints were used mainly to supply the Syro-Arabian-Cappadocian region with silver coins. Moreover, where whole regions had to be supplied with silver money, this was partially delivered from mints like Rome. Under Hadrian this system was abandoned. Furthermore, there are some other structural changes. Obviously, the whole of Syria was cut off from the supply of silver coinage in 128. At the same time, three currency systems were established in Asia Minor in parallel: the cistophori, being compatible with the Amisian silver, the Cilician tetra- and tridrachms and the well-established coin from Caesaraea which under Hadrian was minted in small amounts only. On the basis of the connections shown between the cities of Amisus and Aegeae, it has been argued that parts of this development derived from military demand. Nevertheless, it remains unexplained why, in the case of Pontus / Cappadocia, not more coin from Caesaraea was used. At the same time, it makes us wonder why the Cilician cities of Aegeae and Tarsus had a massive output of silver coin, while the formerly very active mint of Antioch stopped its production. It remains to be studied to what extent political and philhellenic aspects had an infl uence on decisions like these.

Abstract:

The first local silver coinage of Aegeae (Cilicia) is dated by an era. Some scholars have proposed a beginning of this era around 100 B.C., but most of them suppose a beginning in 47 B.C. Lately, the earlier era has been considered. With regard to literary sources which have hitherto not been taken into account, it seems most probably that these tetradrachms are dated by the Caesarian era of 47 B.C.

Abstract:

A new bronze coin type of Pisidian Ariassos, located north of Klymax and southwest of Bademağacı village, composes this study. The type is represented in six specimens that housing in Burdur Museum. The autonomous bronze coinage of Ariassos begins in 1st century BC. The coins have five different types: 'Head of Zeus/Humped bull butting; APIA', 'Head of Artemis/Eagle on horizontal line; ARIA', 'Head of Artemis/Humped bull butting', 'Head of Hermes/Kerykeion within wreath; AP[I ?]' and 'Head of Herakles (?)/Leopard (lion?); ARIA'. The new type in question is a variation of the 'Head of Zeus/Humped bull butting; APIA' type. It bears two jugate bearded heads, right on obverse and humped bull butting, left with legend of ARIA on reverse. The style of the two jugate head is similar with the other head of Zeus on the coins of Ariassos. But it is most probably that these two heads refer to another deities whose unknown to us for the present. It is clearly seen that two obverse dies and three revese dies used for the six coins.

The eras of Pamphylia and the Seleucid invasions of Asia Minor / Andrew Meadows

Source:

American Journal of Numismatics. 2nd ser. 21 (2009) p. 51-88, pl. 5-7

Abstract:

This article attempts to identify eras by which the Pamphylian cities dated their posthumous Alexander coinage of the late third and early second century. The following start dates are suggested: Perge–c. 223/2 BC; Aspendos–c. 213/2; Phaselis – c. 213/2. It is argued that the beginning of the issues of Perge and Aspendos, as well as of their eras, are connected with Seleucid military activity in Pamphylia. The same reason is suggested for the over-representation in hoards of certain issues of the mints of Perge and Aspendos. A connection between the arrival of Antiochus III in Asia Minor in 203 is further proposed as the possible context for the beginning of the coinage of Side with autonomous types. The posthumous Alexander coinage of Phaselis is suggested, on the basis of its pattern of hoarding, to be a different phenomenon, to be regarded as more truly civic in nature. The Seleucid coinages of Seleucus III and Antiochus III previously given to Seleucia ad Calycadnum (SC 916 and 1016) are reattributed to Termessos.

Abstract:

This paper will identify and discuss the phenomenon of the resurrection of various earlier Hellenistic coin types in the region of Pamphylia in the first century B.C. Amongst the coinages considered will be those traditionally attributed to Perge, Side and Aspendos. The curious appearance of imitative coinages, apparently in the first century B.C, will be set against the background of Hellenistic coinages from other regions of Asia Minor that reappear considerably later than their original periods of issue. The agency of Rome and its magistrates in the East will be considered as the background to this phenomenon.

Sherds and coins from a place under the sun : further thoughts from Sagalassos / Jeroen Poblome

Facta 2 (2008) p. 193-213

Abstract:

At first sight, sherds and coins appear to be very compatible categories of artefacts. It is striking, however, that these categories of evidence are not combined frequently in the archaeological literature. This contribution presents a case study of sherds and coins from Sagalassos (SW Turkey), which could lead to wider, generic and conceptual reflections on the integration of both types of evidence. Building chronologies being one of the typical activities of the discipline of archaeology, Roman archaeologists in particular can be considered traditional in their approach to dating, relying mostly on extant archaeological evidence and perhaps most heavily on the artefact categories of sherds and coins. Both categories of evidence prove to have intrinsically different patterns of interpretation, however. Another potential area of conceptual congruence is the role sherds and coins play in the reconstruction of the socioeconomic fate of regions and their developmental trajectories.

Alexandre le Grand et Apollonia de Pisidie / François Rebuffat

Revue Numismatique 6e sér. 28 (1986) p. 65-71

Abstract:

Alexandre le Grand est représenté sous l'Empire sur des monnaies d'Apollonia de Pisidie ; il y est désigné comme le fondateur de cette cité. Historiquement, cette prétention des Apolloniates ne semble pas fondée. Comme il est possible de dater cette série de «quasi-autonomes» des années où Caracalla fut Auguste, on pourrait alors être tenté de croire qu'elles sont le fruit direct ou indirect de son « Alexandromania» qui se manifesta à partir de 214. En fait ces monnaies appartiennent à une période un peu antérieure, probablement l'année 202 qui vit le retour à travers l'Asie de Septimě Sévère en compagnie de Caracalla ; le monnayage romain célébrait alors en ce dernier le «Fundator pacis», ce qui a pu influencer les magistrats d'Apollonia dans le choix de la légende mais l'adoption du type lui-même fut assurément due au fait que les membres de l'une des plus grandes familles de la cité portait de père en fils le nom d'Alexandre : les homonymes du Conquérant ont dû user de toute leur influence pour laisser croire, ainsi, que le Macédonien avait été l'éponyme de leur maison et le fondateur de leur cité.

Cypriots in Cilicia : a rare coin of Anemourion / James Russell and Mary Grace Weir

Source:

Revue Numismatique 155 (2000) p. 111-122

Abstract:

The subject is a unique silver coin in the Staatliche Museen, Berlin, datable from its style to the first quarter of the IVth с B.C. The reverse legend ANEMQPIEQN, which identifies it as belonging to the western Cilician coastal city of that name, provides the earliest record of that city's existence. Several factors indicate a close association with Cyprus ; first, the stylistic resemblances of both the Apollo head of the obverse and the striding Herakles of the reverse to the coinage of certain Cypriot cities of similar date, e.g. Marion, Lapethos, and especially Kition ; second, the obverse legend Ф1ЛОЮГПРО, probably identifying a local ruler with Cypriot connections ; third, the close proximity of Cyprus to Anemourion on the Cilician mainland. A precise historical context for the coin is impossible to establish, but it is tempting to associate it in some way with the expansionist policies of Evagoras I of Salamis in Cilicia around 390 B.C.

Source:

Terra Incognita 6 (2009-2010) p. 155-184

Abstract:

This study aims to reconstruct and explain the rich civic coin production in Pisidia and Pamphylia during the third century AD, a period when these two regions in the southwest of Asia Minor went through a distinct military, socio-economic and monetary evolution. Firstly, a quantitative analysis is carried out to reconstruct a regional mean of coin production. Secondly, the observed patterns and evolutions are analysed by means of some urban case-studies. In many cases the cause for an increase in coin production can be related to an increased military presence and/or the organisation of large-scale agones hieroi. However, some cities show a lack of active minting when one of these phenomena occurred. When a city had other stocks of small change at their disposal, there seems to have been no necessity to mint their own coinage, even during periods of increased purchasing power. In this way, it is possible that some kind of regional system existed with cities increasing their coin production at alternating intervals and only when strictly necessary, depending on the presence of absence of external stocks of small change.

Hephaistos in Pisidia : establishing the importance of a coin type / Peter Talloen, Fran Stroobants & Patrick Degryse

Source:

Revue Belge de Numismatique 161 (2015) p. 325-342

Abstract:

Although Hephaistos, the god of fire, was one of the lesser gods venerated in Pisidia, his cult gained importance in some of the cities of the region between 220 and 270 ce. This paper wishes to illustrate the deity’s popularity and to interpret the phenomenon within its wider historical context, by combining archaeological, numismatic and geological data. The image of Hephaistos forging a shield features on civic coins from Seleukeia, Selge and Sagalassos between 219 and 270 CE, while archaeological and geological evidence points to the contemporary importance of iron production in these cities. The paper contends that the bronze issues depicting the god can probably be linked to the production of arms to supply the Roman army, corresponding to the growing strategic and logistical importance of the region within the context of the broader imperial events.
