Aspects de la diffusion des monnaies d’argent istriennes au nord du Danube à la lumière du trésor découvert à Ivancea

Abstract: The authors publish a coin hoard discovered under unknown circumstances at Ivancea, the Republic of Moldova. The hoard consisted of nine Greek silver coins minted by Istros, all damaged by a powerful fire and out of which only seven were recovered. All Istrian silver coins are included in the fourth group of issues. Recently, both a new classification comprising eight subgroups and a new chronology have been proposed for the fourth group of issues. Based on the coin hoards discovered at the Lower Danube, the authors discuss the chronology of the Istrian silver coins. The analysis of the Istrian drachms discovered in Getae territory indicates that the Ivancea hoard was probably hidden around 280 BC. The hoard may have originated in the remains of settlements dating to the 4th‑3rd centuries BC identified on several locations in the area of Ivancea.Vilcu_NicolaeDACIA LX_8_p121-128

La diffusion de l’or monnayé au nord du Danube à la fin du IVe siècle av. J.-C. et les guerres des diadoques

Les sources numismatiques sont très importantes pour l’histoire des régions du Bas-Danube à cette époque où les sources littéraires et épigraphiques sont peu nombreuses. Les plus expressives sont les monnaies en or, dont la frappe et la diffusion dans la zone sont étroitement liées aux plus dramatiques moments de l’histoire politique et militaire.  Sur la base des découvertes de monnaies grecques en or, nous nous proposons de discuter la diffusion des statères de type Philippe II, Alexandre le Grand et Philippe III au nord du Danube à la fin du IVe siècle av. J.-C. Vilcu Peuce 13-2015

E. Petac, A. Vîlcu, The Lysimachus type Gold mintage from Odessos, Istros, 19, 2013, p. 297-326

Abstract:  Despite  the  abscence  of  the  epigraphically  or  literary evidence concerning the involvement of Odessos in the events from the middle of the IIIrd century BC, by far the greatest number of posthumous Lysimachus type staters from the Western Black Sea Greek cities, before the  appearance  of  the  trident  series  in  Byzantion,  belongs  to  this  city. There are 12 issues struck with nine obverse and 12 reverse dies, having or not spear on goddess shoulder, as happens also in Mesambria, Tomis, Byzantion.  All  these  gold  issues,  involving  four  mint  masters  (KOI, KOIP,  ΚΛΕΑΝ  and  probably  KA)  seem  to  be  struck  in  just  few  years, before the beginning of the third Syrian war until the battle of Andros.petac_vilcu_stateri_lysimach_odessos
