Description

A significant number of coin hoards dated to the period 550-350 BC is kept at the Hellenic Numismatic Museum, attesting the long history of the city-states’ consolidation. These hoards are of a major importance since most of them were found in an archaeological context or at least, their findspot and conditions are known in a certain degree.
The aim of this paper is to present this material, published or unpublished, from a new perspective to add, wherever possible, to our knowledge of the regional circulation pattern and the numismatic history of the issuing authorities.
