Historical background


Evia - Histiaeus

(196-168 BC)

Histiaeus was located in the east of Euboea. Through its extensive coinage, we can imagine the economic role that the town has held. The coinage was struck to commemorate the expulsion, with the help of the Athenians, the pro-Macedonian tyrant Philistides in 340 BC Histiaeus seems to take considerable importance after the cessation of emissions League euboïque in 267 BC Its independence was confirmed after 196 BC His coinage was widely imitated by the Macedonians and perhaps served to stipendier mercenary Greek army on the eve of the Battle of Pydna in 168 After BC the Macedonian defeat, the city lost its importance and no longer minted as bronze.
