Historical background


LYCIE - SATRAPES OF LYCIA - ZAGABA

(400-380 BC)

We have little historical information about these semi-independent Lycian satraps that were set up in the second half of the fifth century. Their mints disappear definitively during the second half of the fourth century, on arrival in the region of the satrap of Cilicia, Mazaios. Zagaba seems to be contemporary with Mithrapata.
