Commentary


Type inhabituel et particulier. Le revers est directement copié sur le monnayage athénien stéphanophore dit “de nouveau style” tandis que le droit est emprunté au monnayage d’Auguste. Ce type semble plus rare que ne le laissent supposer les ouvrages généraux.

Historical background


ARABIA FELIX - Himyarites

(First century BC - first century AD)

The Himyarites are reported by Pliny (VI, 161). "The Happy Arabia" was not part of the Roman Empire but was very important strategically for the control of the spice route and silk to and from India and China.
