Commentary


.
Aujourd’hui ce monnayage est plutôt attribué à Kaunos et décrit comme un double sicle d’étalon persique ou éginétique. Mais le lion à Kaunos semble plus massif. E. S. G. Robinson avait en son temps attribué ce monnayage à Mylassa, A Hoard of Archaïc Greek Coins from Anatolia, NC 1961, p. 114-115, n° 37.

Historical background


DECAY - UNCERTAIN

(Ve - fourth century BC)

Mint in Caria began at the very end of the seventh century or early sixth century BC in Halicarnassus (GC. 3472) with electrum staters. The silver coins are introduced in the second half of the fifth century BC with currencies Aeginetan weight. The Archaic period ends at the beginning of the fifth century after the Ionian revolt. Many currencies are still not allocated or should be. The findings, few, poorly localized or broken after their discovery do not facilitate this work, however, so important for the history.
