Historical background


SICILY - SYRACUSE - FOURTH REPUBLIC

(289-287 BC)

We have little information on the fourth republic (289-287 BC), a short period between the reigns of Agathokles and Hiketas, before the arrival of Pyrrhus in Sicily. The exiles were recalled. It does not appear that gold, electrum or silver coins were made during this "interregnum".
