Historical background


PHRYGIA - LAODIKEIA

(2nd - 1st century BC)

Laodicea, which was located in the valley of Lycos, owes its name to the wife of Antiochus II (261-246 AC.) who refounded the city. After the Peace of Apamea, the city entered the Attalid orbit. The cistophoric coinage does not seem to have started before the battle of Magnesia of the Meander (190 AC.) and, after the peace of Apamea, it seems to have been the only coinage of the great kingdom of Eumenes II and Attalus II and III until the death of the latter (133 AC.) who bequeathed his kingdom to Rome.
