Historical background

Phrygia - LAODICEA

Laodicea, which was located in the valley of Lycos, is named after the wife of Antiochus II (261-246 AC.) Who refounded the city. After the Peace of Apamea, the city went into orbit Attalid. Cistophorique the mint does not seem to have begun before the battle of Magnesia Meander (190 AC.) And, after the Peace of Apamea, it was-it seems the only mint of the great kingdom of Eumenes II and Attalus II and III to the death of the latter (133 AC.) who bequeathed his kingdom to Rome.
