The origins of Iconia (modern Konya, Turkey) are buried in mystery, but excavations show it to have been settled by the late copper age, ca. 3000 BC. Of more relevance to the coin at hand, during the Hellenistic period, the town was ruled by the kings of Pergamon. When Attalus III, the last king of Pergamon, died without an heir, he bequeathed the kingdom to the Roman Republic. Coins of this period onward were struck in the city under the direction of a magistrate. In AD 41, the city was changed to Claudiconium, in honor of the new emperor Claudius (AD 41-54). Coins issued from the reign of Claudius through Hadrian carry the name of the city and read ΚΛΑΥΔЄΙΚΟΝΙЄѠΝ. Hadrian conferred colonial status to the city and renamed it Colonia Aelia Hadriana Augusta Iconensium. Under Claudius, the name of the governor of Galatia, M. Annius Afrinus, appears on the coinage as ЄΠΙ ΑΦΡЄΙΝΟΥ (by Afrinus), as is the case with this coin of Claudius and Agrippina II: Claudius, AD 41-54, and Agrippina II, AD 50-59.
