Commentary


.
La chronologie du numéraire de Philoxène a été modifiée par O. Bopearachchi. Il place ce roi, grâce à l’étude des monogrammes comme un contemporain d’Antialcidas (115-95 avant J.-C.). C’est le premier monarque à utiliser des drachmes d’argent de flan quadrangulaire. Le revers est emprunté à Antimaque II.
