Commentary


Pour l’atelier d’Éphèse, nous avons des cistophores datés entre l’an 1 (134-133 avant J.-C.) et 67 (68-67 avant J.-C.).
Le monnayage cistophorique ne semble pas avoir commencé avant la bataille de Magnésie du Méandre (190 AC.). Après la paix d'Apamée, ce fut semble-t-il le seul monnayage du grand royaume d'Eumène II, d'Attale II et d'Attale III jusqu'à la mort de ce dernier (133 AC.) qui légua son royaume à Rome. Pour les cistophores grecs, on distingue deux périodes : avant ou après 133 avant J.-C. Notre exemplaire est daté de l’an 46 (89/88 avant J.-C.) appartient à la deuxième période. Le cistophore sous la domination romaine semble valoir 3 deniers. Le monnayage cistophorique cessera sous les Sévères. Pour cette émission François de Callatay a relevé trois coins de droit et six de revers pour six exemplaires.

Historical background


IONIE - EPHESUS

(III - Ist century BC)

Located at the mouth of the Cayster coast of Asia Minor, Ephesus was known for its dedicated to Artemis (Artemision) temple which has been dated through the votive deposit of construction, the second half of the seventh century. The city was the Persian yoke. After the naval battle of Mycale in 479 before J. C-. She moved closer to Athens and joined the Delian League-attico from 477 before J. C-. She broke with Athens after the disaster of Syracuse in 415 before J. C-. In 407 before J. C-. Lysander set up his headquarters at Ephesus and the Athenians won the Aegos Potamos victory before 404 J. C-. Spartan domination ceased after the victory of Conon at Cnidus in 394 before J. C-. Peace Antalcidas 387 before J. C-. consecrated the return of the city in the Persian orbit. This domination lasted until 338 before J. C-. , When the city rose up under the leadership of Philip II of Macedon. After Granicus in 334 before J. C-. , The city rallied to Alexander after chasing the Persian garrison. In 295, the city fell into the hands of Lysimachus who Arsinoeia renamed in honor of his wife, the daughter of Ptolemy. It regained its independence after the death of Lysimachus in 281 prior to Couroupédion J. -C and enjoyed a period of independence until 258 before J. C-. , When she went for half a century under the rule Ptolemaic before winning again a precarious autonomy. After 188 before J. C-. , The city was incorporated into the kingdom of Pergamum and followed his intended legacy to Rome in 133 before J. C-. .
