Description

In 2018 the Münzkabinett, Staatliche Museen zu Berlin and the Berlin-Brandenburgische Akademie der Wissenschaften started developing a coin typology of the Troad and Mysia based on coins and casts preserved in Berlin and other resources (corpus-nummorum.eu). Coins were produced in this region from 6th century BC until the reign of Gallienus (AD 253-268). The distribution of mints published by Barclay V. Head in 1911 in his Historia Numorum is widely used in numismatics. Nevertheless, some questions remain as to the location of mints and their relationship to each other. We have three categories of mints. The first are those with a known location like Cyzicus and Pergamum, then there are sites with a likely location like Pionia (which was attributed to the Troad), Priapus and Teuthrania. The location of a few mints like Germe, Iolla, Cisthene and Thebe is open to debate.
