Kosmas Posted August 31, 2022 · Member Share Posted August 31, 2022 (edited) One of the ancient greek coins that have dating issues is surely the Dyrrachium Stater from Illyria ! Most of the auction houses date this coin as a circa 450-350BC . If this coin was minted at the start of the Peloponnesian War it is surely a very historical issue because Dyrrachium/Epidamnos is were Peloponnesian War started as Thucydides said ! In my opinion this coin was minted around 440-400BC and it surely imitated the Corcyra staters . And it's almost impossible that a Greek city state started minting coins at the second half of 4th Century BC . And why they started so late ? If somebody has any idea about this issue just let us know ! Edited August 31, 2022 by Kosmas 3 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
