Historical background


THRACE - THRACIAN ISLANDS - THASOS

(525-463 BC)

Thasos, located on the island of the same name, concealed important metal mines which aroused the covetousness of its neighbours. During the Persian Wars (490-480 AC.), it was occupied by the Persians which could explain the use of the Babylonian standard.
