New aspects of Nabataean coins / Rachel Barkay

Source:

Aram 27 (2015) 1-2 p. 431-439

Abstract:

n recent years, many previously unknown Nabataean coins have appeared in the markets. Careful study revealed some new types and new variants of coins, which resulted in new conclusions about certain issues. For example, one of the most prominent discoveries concerns the earliest Nabataean coins. It is a large group of anonymous coins which copied motifs from the coins of Alexander the Great. These coins were dated between the end of the second century BCE and the mid-first-century CE, or even later. Lately, many coins belonging to this group were found minted on Ptolemaic hosts. The details of the Ptolemaic coins, the verity of the Proto Nabataean types and variants, their worn state, as well as the archaeological context of some of them, resulted in new dating and classification. It seems that these coins started to be minted sometime around the mid-third-century BCE, a date which is much earlier than previously thought; on the other-hand it seems that their minting also stopped earlier than was suggested in earlier studies. There are some new descriptions on Nabataean coins which were not known before from the coins of later years. For example, under the reign of Obodas (c. 30-9 BC), two unique coins were issued, one showing a camel and the other showing the head of Zeus. The latter raises questions concerning the exact mythological place of this god in the framework of the Nabataean worship. New identified types and variants concerning the coins of the great Nabataean king Aretas IV (9 BC –AD 40) made it possible to find dates from periods that were considered to be gaps in his minting. Numerous changes of previous attributions are put forward – especially of the undated issues, which also lack the name or title of the king. Altogether there are many new coins which will make the numismatic picture of the Nabataeans clearer.

Abdissarès l'Adiabénien / by F. de Callataÿ

Abstract:

The Brussels Coin Cabinet has recently acquired a unique bronze coin of the king Abdissares with the additional legend [A]DAIABENOU (from Adiabene). Adiabene is the area of the cities of Niniva and Nisibis (between the small and the great Zab). No coin has never been attributed so far to a ‘king of Adiabene’, since Abdissares was classified either to Armenia or to Sophene. The rare coins of Abdissares look similar to those of Xerxes, and have a strong Hellenistic (Seleucid) flavour. A date and a political context for this exceptional issue remain hard to determine.

The camels of Natounia / Oliver D. Hoover

Schweizerische Numismatische Rundschau 88 (2009) p. 161-168, pl. 12

Abstract:

The author reattributes a rare series of anepigraphic bronze coins depicting camels to Natounia in Adiabene on the basis of association with Natounia bronzes in the Nisibis 1955 hoard and a shared style of wreath border. Two specimens apparently struck over Seleukid bronze coins of Antiochos VIII date the camel series to the first century bc. They may belong to the 60s bc, a period when Tigranes II, the neighbouring king of Armenia was also overstriking Syrian bronze coins for his own coinage and when Adiabene suffered occupation by Parthian and Roman troops.
