Historical background


(Third century BC)

Coining the name and type of Lysimachus

The coinage of Lysimachus does not stop at the King's death in 281 BC, but continued to be struck in Thrace and in the workshops of the Black Sea to the first century BC In addition Greek cities who arrogated to themselves the monetary law, "loosestrife" who used to buy the turbulent Thracian tribes were early imitated, even if they were less successful than the Alexanders. They were copied in the region of the Black Sea.
