Historical background


CILICIA - TARSUS - DATAMES SATRAP

378-362 BC)

From 379, Pharnabaze, satrap of Bithynia, had been charged with reconquering Egypt which had revolted, under the leadership of Nectanebo I (380-363 BC.), against Persian domination. Datames, satrap of Cappadocia, was responsible for assisting him on behalf of Artaxerces II (404-359 BC.). To prepare for this expedition, considerable quantities of metal were minted at Tarsus. First struck for Pharnabaze between 378 and 374 with the legend (Pharnabazu), they were then struck for Datames, who succeeded Pharnabaze in 374 BC, between 378 and 372.
