Description

We present a previously unpublished issue of "Baetican Lead Tokens". They were found at Linares, Bailén, Jaén and, in short, Andalusia (Spain). The uniface and the lead issue was "struck" by Eucleratus. It should not necessarily be related to mining activity. According to epigraphic sources, Eucleratus is a Greek cognomen documented just once in Asia, specifically in Balat (Miletus) in a funerary inscription bearing the name Lucius Ambeivius Eucleratus (EDCS 29601640). In summary, I discuss the meaning of the new lead issue, presenting a formal description (• EE • EVCLERATVS) and possible interpretation of the new lead tokens of Eucleratus.
