Commentary


Pour ce type, G. Buceti a recensé quatorze exemplaires avec des poids compris entre 9,91 g et 19,82 g. R. Calciati n’en connaissait que sept.
C’est le premier monnayage de cuivre de la cité avec l’ethnique (ZIZ) en punique au droit qui conforte la domination carthaginoise sur la cité. Le coq au droit n’est pas sans rappeler le monnayage d’Himère. Outre l’hemilitron ou hexonkion, nous avons le tetras ou trionkion, l’hexas ou dionkion et l’onkia.
