Recently I embarked on a mission to actively seek them, which in part was a cost saving exercise. I had already bookmarked a nice looking coin from Seleukeia a while ago, and when a small and attractive Ionian dichalkon showed up in the listings of the same seller, I decided to kill two birds with one stone. Here they are: Pretty little specimens, and with an attractive patina, which is the first thing I look for in coppers. To my surprise though they presented me with a problem I haven't really run into before. A few weeks back when I got my Parthian drachm, I commented on the lack of historical sources that made the researching of the coin challenging. However looking back now, that coin was a goldmine of information compared to these ones! For starters, I don't even know what denomination the Ionian coin is. Both coins are from roughly around the first century BC, and they are from Asia Minor, and specifically from cities/areas that belonged to the autonomous Kingdoms of Pergamon and Seleukeia. For the dichalkon we also have the name 'Diogenes' which must have been a magistrate of some sort... And that's it! I can't find any more information. If anyone can share some additional information about these coins please do so, and if you have any examples to share, even better! But if you don't have any, please share your Greek bronzes and coppers. I would love to see what's out there!
