Commentary


Ce dauphin est un témoignage à la frontière entre Numismatique et Archéologie. Considéré comme pré-monétaire, ce type d’objet a pu être utilisé par des populations celtes au contact du monde grec à un moment où la monnaie ne s’est pas encore imposée.

Historical background


SARMATIA - OLBIA

(6th - 5th century BC)

Olbia as Istros (Istrus) was a Milesian colony, located not far from Borysthenes and Hypanis on Pontus Euxin, equidistant from Tyra and Panticapaeum on the Chersonese of Thrace. Its prosperity came from its strategic geographical position between the Scythian tribes and Pont-Euxin. It experienced its greatest economic expansion in the Hellenistic period. It was finally taken by the barbarians in the 3rd century AD.
