Commentary
Historical background
Obverse legend : Anépigraphe .
Obverse description : Tête de la nymphe Parthénopé ou Neapolis à droite, la chevelure bouclée, ceinte d’un bandeau avec collier et boucles d’oreille ; derrière la tête, un astragale ; sous le cou un petit monogramme formé des lettres EK .
Reverse description : Taureau androcéphale passant à droite couronné par Niké volant à droite .
Reverse legend : [NEOPOLITWN]/ (NU) .
Au droit, derrière la tête de la nymphe, l’astragale est l’ancêtre de notre jeu d’osselet. Ce symbole se retrouve associé à plusieurs monogrammes qui semblent former une série homogène. Sur notre nomos, le monogramme est difficile à interpréter et doit être lu en rétrograde.

(340-241 BC)

Neapolis, very old creation was first founded by colonists from Rhodes under the name of Parthenope in the eighth century BC The city was then colonized by the people of Cumae a century later. In the fifth century BC under the leadership of chalcidoid and Athenian colonists, the city took its final name of Neapolis (Naples). The Samnites finally invade Campania and occupy the citadel of Naples for over fifty years. Finally the Romans took possession of Naples in the third century BC The city remained nevertheless Hellenized and maintained its independence until 241 BC.
