Historical background


(Fourth century BC)

The number of imitations for coinage of Athens is considerable. Many copies were discovered in Naucratis in the Nile Valley. This type drachmas seems to come from Palestinian workshops, perhaps Gaza? At first, the imitations are servile and good weight. Gradually, the weight of the coins is lowered and the style becomes more coarse. The next step is to modify all or part of the typology and the alteration or disappearance of the legend and its replacement by Aramaic letters. Our copy that bad style certainly belongs to the first phase of imitation coinage of Athens.
