Description

Despite its key role in the current historical discourse, the early Hellenistic coinage of Adaios is, at the same time, one of the most controversial topics in Thracian numismatics. After a half-century long discussion, the identity of this figure, as well as the chronology of his coins and the location of the mint, remain uncertain. While taking into account both textual and material numismatic evidence, this paper reassesses the issue from the perspective of archaeological evidence, whose potential, in our view, has yet to be fully exploited.
