Historical background


AEGINA - Aegina - AEGINA

(Sixth - fifth century BC)

The city of Aegina is located on the island of the same name. It is placed at an equal distance between Athens and the coast of Argolis. Aegina is that the first coins were minted in the West in the sixth century BC Its geographical and economic situation should make a commercial place of primary importance to the crossroads between Euboea, Athens, Corinth and the Peloponnese. The Aeginetan standard (Aegina) quickly spread throughout the Aegean, Greece, Crete and part of Asia Minor Sea. The mint does not seem to have started before the second half of the sixth century BCE. Unfortunately, after the Persian wars, the city was eclipsed by Athens took it in 457 BC The Aeginetans were driven out by the Athenians. Aegina not regained his freedom after the fall of Athens, but she had definitely lost its economic power.
