Historical background


CILICIE - TARSUS - satrap DATAMÈS

378-362 BC)

From 379 Pharnabaze, satrap of Bithynia, was tasked to reconquer Egypt which had revolted under the leadership of Nectanebo I (380-363 BC.) Against Persian rule. Datamès, satrap of Cappadocia, was to assist him on behalf of Artaxerxes II (404-359 BC.). To prepare for this expedition, considerable quantities of metal were minted at Tarsus. First minted for Pharnabaze between 378 and 374 with the caption (Pharnabazu), they were then struck for Datamès, who succeeded Pharnabaze in 374 BC, between 378 and 372.
