Historical background


CELTIC DANUBE - IMITATIONS tetradrachms ALEXANDER III AND ITS SUCCESSORS

(Second - first century BC)

Under this heading are generally grouped all mints that do not have precise attribution. Sometimes the term "Celts of the East" is proposed. After the Celts have plundered Delphi and are widespread in Greece and Asia Minor, they seized a large quantity of booty, with their plunder. Hellenistic kings Diadoques Epigoni or used them as mercenaries in armies where the average wage was normally a gold stater corresponding to five penthouses tetradrachmas or twenty Attic drachmas. Prototypes representing the head of Herakles with Zeus sitting on the back were widely copied and imitated throughout Pontus, northern Macedonia and Thrace. The final phase of counterfeiting occurs at the end of the second century or early first century BC where there are still traits of law and reverse legends and more than a rounded side of a room substantially smooth on both sides.
