Description

Tisna, one of the cities in the ancient region of Aeolis in Asia Minor, lies today within the borders of Aliağa district of İzmir province. Located on the Güzelhisar Valley, between Myrina and Aigai, the city is located on Sarıkale Tepe, 350 m at its highest point. The numismatic data obtained from the regular archaeological surveys conducted since 2018 in Sarıkale, on Kocakale Hill and its surrounding area under the direction of E. Erdan, not only shed light on the location of the ancient city, but also helped us to better understand the coin circulation in Aeolis. In this study we also report on finds of coins minted by the city of Tisna recovered in the region.
