#11175: Electrum (GOLD/SILVER Alloy) Hecke - 4th Century BC, 

Island of Lesbos

Historical Context:  This coin was minted on the Island of Lesbos in the 4th Century BC. This is shortly after the time of Sapphro, the poet, and widely acknowledged as the first lesbian known to history. 

Lesbos is a Greek island located in the northeastern Aegean Sea. It is separated from Turkey by the narrow Mytilini Strait.  Lesbos was founded in the 11th century BC by the family Penthilidae, who arrived from Thessaly, and ruled the city-state until a popular revolt (590–580 BC) led by Pittacus of Mytilene ended their rule.  For a short period it was a member of the Athenian confederacy, its apostasy from which is described in a stirring chapter of Thucydides' history of the Peloponnesian War. In Hellenistic times, the island belonged to various Successor kingdoms until 79 BC when it passed into Roman hands.

According to Classical Greek mythology, Lesbos was the patron god of the island. Macar was reputedly the first king whose many daughters bequeathed their names to some of the present larger towns. In Classical myth his sister, Canace, was killed to have him made king. The place names with female origins are likely to be much earlier settlements named after local goddesses, who were replaced by gods.

The word lesbian derives from the poems of Sappho, who was born in Lesbos and who wrote with powerful emotional content directed toward other females. The Alexandrians included her in the list of nine lyric poets. Her birth was sometime between 630 and 612 BCE, and it is said that she died around 570 BCE, but little is known for certain about her life. The bulk of her poetry, which was well-known and greatly admired throughout antiquity, has been lost, but her immense reputation has endured through surviving fragments.

#10635: SILVER Tetradrachm- 415-387 BC
Bruttium, Rhegion 

RARE and Highly Collectable Type

Historical Context: This coin was minted Bruttium, Rhegion, located on the toe of the Italian peninsula and is separated by the Strait of Messina from the island of Sicily.  After Cumae, it is the second oldest Greek colony in southern Italy. The colony was settled by the inhabitants of Chalcis and Messenia in 720 BC on the site of an older settlement. This dated back to the 3rd millennium BC and was established by the Ausones. The last Ausonian ruler was the legendary king Italus (from whom the name of Italy is derived).  Rhegion was one of the most important cities in Magna Grecia, reaching great economic and political power during the 5th and 6th centuries BC under the Anaxilas government. Rhegion reached great artistic and cultural heights with its philosophic Pythagorean school, as well as sculpture and poetry schools, from where came leaders such as Pythagoras of Rhegium and Ibycus. Later, Rhegion allied with Athens during the Peloponnesian War but in 387 BC, the city was taken by the Syracusans.  As an independent city, Rhegium was an important ally and "socia navalis" of Rome. Then during the Imperial age it became one of the most important and flourishing cities of southern Italy because it was the seat of the "Corrector", the Governor of the "Regio II Lucania et Bruttii" (province of Lucany and Brutium).  It was a noble Roman city.  During the Byzantine Age, Rhegion became the capital of the "metropolis of the Byzantine possessions in southern Italy", and later capital of the Duchy of Calabria and linchpin of the Greek church in Italy.

#11658: Silver Tetradrachm - 2nd Cent BC
Cyme (Aeolis) Region


This coin is absolutely beautiful type....One of my favorite types

Historical Context: This coin was minted in Cyme (Kyme) about the second century BC.  Aeolis was located on the western shore of Asia Minor (just South of Lesbos).   Cyme is located on the western shore of Aeolis to the south of Myrina. 

The Aeolians regarded Cyme as the largest and most important of their twelve cities, which were located on the coastline of Asia Minor (modern-day Turkey).

In his Histories, Herodotus makes reference to Cyme (or Phriconis) as being one of the cities in which the rebel Lydian governor Pactyes sought refuge, following his attempted rebellion against the Persian King Cyrus the Great.

#11663: SILVER STATER - 330 BC, 
Bruttium (Lokroi Epizephyrioi, Italy)

Highly Collectable type - High Artistic Execution

Historical Context: 

Bruttium, also formerly known as Italia, is a region in southern Italy, forming the "toe" of the Italian Peninsula. In ancient times the name Calabria was used to refer to the southern part of Apulia, the peninsula of Salento (also known as the "heel" of Italy).

Calabria was first settled by Italic Oscan-speaking tribes. Two of these tribes were the Oenotrians (roughly translated into the "vine-cultivators") and the Itali. Greek contact with the latter resulted in Calabria taking the name of the tribe and was the first region to be called Italy (Italia). Greeks settled heavily along the coast at an early date and several of their settlements, including the first Italian city called Rhégion (Reggio di Calabria), and the next ones Sybaris, Kroton (Crotone), a settlement where the mathematician Pythagoras later resided, and Lokroi (Locri), were numbered among the leading cities of Magna Graecia during the 6th and 5th centuries BC.

The Greeks were conquered by the 3rd century BC by roving Oscan tribes from the north, including a branch of the Samnites called the Lucanians and an offshoot of the Lucanians called the Bruttii. The Bruttii conquered the Greek cities, established their sovereignty over present day Calabria.

The Romans conquered the area in the 3rd century BC after the fierce Bruttian resistance, possibly the fiercest resistance the Romans had to face from another Italic people. At the beginning of the Roman Empire the region would form the Augustan Regio III Lucania et Bruttii of Roman Italy.

Historical Context:  This coin was minted in Athens during the 2nd Century BC.  In this era Athens was under Roman control.  Throughout most of the 5th century BC, after the Persian defeat, Athens ruled the Aegean world and became a great cultural and political center.  However, the Peloponnesian War, 431-404 BC, drained Athens of her wealth allowing subsequent conquests by Alexander the Great, the Seleukid Empire, and finally, the Romans.  These "New Style Owl" coins are some of the most popular coins in antiquity.

#11388: Didrachm of Pixodaros, 
Satrap of Caria, 340-334 BC

HIGHEST ARTISTIC STYLE !!!

Historical Context:  As part of the Achaemenid Empire, Caria in the fourth century BC was under the rule of a family of semi-independent satraps known collectively as the Hekatomnids, named after the dynasty's founder, Hekatomnos. Born in Mylasa, Artaxerxes II appointed Hekatomnos satrap of Caria after the fall of Tissaphernes, with orders that he provide forces which would assist the Great King in his recovery of the island of Cyprus. Though there exists some doubt about Hekatomnos' loyalty to the Achaemenids, such doubts did not prevent him being given control of Miletos, one of the most important Ionian cities, certainly his in 386 BC under the terms of the King's Peace. When he died in 377 BC, Hekatomnos' son Maussollos succeeded him, soon in turn to be followed by his other sons, Hidreus and Pixodaros.

Pixodarus, the youngest of the three sons of Hecatomnus, ruled 340-334 BC.  Wishing to gain the blessings of the rising Macedonian Empire, Pixodarus offered his eldest daughter in marriage to his Philip's son Arrhidaeus. However, Arrhidaeus' ambitious younger brother, Alexander (later Alexander the Great) offered himself instead. Pixodarus eagerly agreed but Philip put an end to the scheme. Pixodarus died, apparently a natural death.

#10246: SILVER Stater- 393 to 370 BC
Reign of Amyntas III

ex Wayne Sayles

Historical Context: This coin was minted byu the Macedonia Empire during the reign of Amyntas III (393 to 370 BC).  Amyntas III was the son of Arrhidaeus and father of Philip II, was king of Macedon in 393 BC, and again from 392 to 370 BC.  He came to the throne after the ten years of confusion which followed the death of Archelaus I, the patron of art and literature. But he had many enemies at home; in 393 he was driven out by the Illyrians, but in the following year, with the aid of the Thessalians, he recovered his kingdom. Medius, head of the house of the Aleuadae of Larissa, is believed to have provided aid to Amyntas in recovering his throne. The mutual relations between the Argeadae and the Aleuadae dates to the time of Archelaus I.

Note:  The coin may be a fourrie, meaning it has a copper core.  However, that is not certain.  The coin does weight tot he correct weight standard and the exposed core looks like it may be crystalized silver (as expected for the standard issue), not copper.
