Historical background

DECAY - Alabanda

(III - II century BC)

Alabanda Carie was placed on the river Marsyas, which then flowed into the Meander thirty kilometers. Its inhabitants were known for their promiscuous. During the war against Philip V of Macedon, Alabanda would allied to Rome. After 197 BC, falling into the hands of Antiochus III the Great (223-187 AC), the city changed its name and became Antioch in Caria. After the defeat of Magnesia in 189 BC and the peace of Apamea in the following year, the city regained its independence and name. It is at this point that the coinage in the name of Alexander had begun. In 168-167, the provincial cities of Caria and Lycia were declared free by the Senate of Rome to thank them for helping in the fight against the king of Macedonia, Perseus.
