Historical background

Lycia - satraps Lycian - Pericles

(IVe siècle avant J.-C.)

Satrape Périclès

We have little historical information about these semi-independent satraps Lycian who have set up in the second half of the fifth century. Their mints definitely disappear in the second half of the fourth century to the arrival in the region satrap of Cilicia, Mazaios. Mithrapata, or dynast satrap of Antiphellos, a town on the Lycian coast between Patara and Aperlai which was the port of Phellos, seems to have preceded Pericles. The workshop Antiphellos minted for both characters. Pericles died in 362 BC he died, Lycia returned to the Persian orbit until the Macedonian conquest.
