LYCIAN DYNASTS - KUPRILLI, CIRCA 470-440 BC - AR 1/3 Stater or tetrobol, probably Xanthos

weight 2,95gr. ; silver Ø 13mm.
obv. Winged goat flying left, triskeles before
rev. Triskeles, Lycian legend,  KO-ΠP-ΛΛE around 
within incuse square with dotted border

Kuprilli (Lycian: KOΠPΛΛE) was a dynast of Lycia, at a time when this part of Anatolia was subject to the Persian, or Achaemenid, Empire. Kuprilli ruled at the time of the Athenian alliance, the Delian League. Present-day knowledge of Lycia in the period of classical antiquity comes mostly from archaeology, in which this region is unusually rich. Many of the Lycian dynastic issues bear the triskeles, a distinctive mark that was also present on the coinage of the later Lycian League. It is probably a solar emblem symbolizing rotatory motion. In this case it would refer to the worship of the national Lycian deity, Apollo, the God of Light.

Xanthos (Lycian: Arñna) was a city in ancient Lycia, the site of present-day Kınık, Antalya Province, Turkey, and of the river on which the city is situated. The ruins of Xanthus are on the south slopes of a hill, the ancient acropolis, located on the northern outskirts of the modern city, on the left bank of the Xanthus, which flows beneath the hill. There is evidence of a fire that destroyed the wooden tombs and temples of Xanthos in around 470 BC. This fire was probably caused by Cimon of Athens when he attacked the sacred citadel in retaliation for the destruction of the Athenian Acropolis by the Persians and their allies, including the Lycians, in 480 BC. The Xanthians, under their dynast, Kuprilli, rebuilt the buildings in stone, which are reflected in the numerous Tombs of Xanthos visible today. Xanthos was a center of culture and commerce for the Lycians, and later for the Persians, and most likely the residence and mint of dynast Kuprilli.

Probably the third known example. Extremely rare.

LYCIA - EARLY ANEPIGRAPHIC COINS - AR Stater, circa 520-480 BC

weight 9,29gr. ; silver Ø 17mm.
obv. Forepart of wild boar right
rev. Irregular incuse square

The earliest coins of Lycia were anepigraphic coins (without any legend). The distinctive symbol on the money of the various cities which took part in this Federal coinage is the Triskeles or so-called Triquetra, which sometimes takes the form of a tetraskeles or of a diskeles. Various hypotheses have been advanced as to the intention of this strange symbol. The most reasonable is that which has been put forward by L. Müller, that it is a solar emblem symbolizing rotatory motion. In this case it would refer to the worship of the national Lycian deity, Apollo, the God of Light. The animal types; winged lions, griffins, bulls, etc., must remain for the most part unexplained, but the wild boar was associated with Apollo. The weight-standard is the Babylonic, but shows considerable irregularity, and a tendency to fall to the Euboïc standard. The staters are divided into thirds (tetrobols), sixths (diobols), twelfths (obols), but also occasionally into halves (drachms).

LYCIAN DYNASTS - VEKHSSERE I, CIRCA 460-430 BC - AR 1/6 Stater or diobol, Patara

weight 1,33gr. ; silver Ø 11mm.
obv. Helmeted head of Athena right, wearing Corinthian helmet
rev. Triskeles, around the Lycian legend;  F - ↑  -  ↑( = WEKH ), 
all within dotted square within incuse square

The ruins of Patara are located within the boundaries of the village of Gelemis, a region of Kas, in Antalya province. The city, which was the sea gate of West Lycia to the world, was built on two sides of a inlet that ran inland for 2 km. The Lycians, who founded Patara and were called Tremilae or Termilae, were resident in today′s Dirmil (Burdur); they were not from Crete as Herodotus wrote. They called their country Trmis in their own native language, they called themselves Trmili in the Lycian sense, and they spoke a native language related to Luwian that is one of the earliest known languages of Anatolia. With the archaeological findings uncovered in Patara, the history of the city goes back to the Early Bronze Age. The earliest written document in which the city is mentioned is dated to the 13th century BC in Yalburt, the Luvice temple′s hieroglyphic inscription. The great Hittite King IV Tuthaliya related about his campaigns in the Lukka region and it′s said that he had made offerings and gifts, had erected steles and constructed sacred places in front of Patar Mountain.


The architectural and ceramic finds unearthed in Tepecik date back to the 10th-7th century BC, Patara without interruption passed from the Hittite Lukka to Homeric Lycian. Around 540 BC the city was connected with the Persian commander Harpagos and the Persians, who came from Caria. In 516/15 BC the city was connected to the ′First Satrap′ in Sardis; after the 469/68 Eurymedon Naval War, he joined the Attica-Delos Naval Union. The development of the area is confirmed by the fact that coins were minted in Patara by Dynast Vekhssere I in 450-430/25 and Vekhssere II in 430/20-410/ 400 BC.

The Lycians, an autochthonous ethnos, inhabited a mountainous land with little access from its rugged coastline; geography fostered independence and discouraged attempts by outsiders to impose control. Te dynasts first come into view circa 540 BC. They and their people were subject to the rule of the Persian king and his satraps between 546-470 BC and from circa 400-360 BC. Te Lycians joined the Satraps′ Revolt (which had collapsed by 362 BC) and were defeated by their neighbour Mausollos of Caria, who then added Lycia to the lands of his satrapy and brought an end to the rule of local dynasts.

The early Lycian interest in portraiture in sculpture and on coins can be attributed to a taste for employing the forms and themes of Greek art to express the political status and ambitions of local rulers whose culture and outlook had little in common with the Greeks. They also borrowed from the iconography and practices of their more powerful overlords, the Persians. But portraiture was a feature of Greek art. Greek artists had established ′defining features′ for the representation of deities and heroesduring the archaic period and in the fifth century BC were experimenting with the depiction of men.

LYCIAN DYNASTS - ARUVATIJESI, CIRCA 390-370 BC - AR 1/6 Stater or diobol, Zagaba (Apollonia)

It is believed that the city of Zagaba may be the same as the Greek named city of Apollonia. In the third century BC it formed a union with the cities of Aperlai, Simena and Isinda. On the hilltop of the settlement hill a castle was already built at the time of the first settlement. It only seems to have regained its importance in the Roman Empire. This is also supported by the fact that during this time Apollonia was the site of large imperial buildings such as the theatre, the three-room spa and a monumental heroon.

The coinage of the Trbbenimi is very similar to that of Perikles. Therefor it is believed that Trbbenimi, a Lycian name, changed his name into Perikles, a Greek name. They are one and the same person.

The ancient site of Wedrei lies near the modern town of Kumluca. After about 360 BC, the region of Lycia was taken over by the Carian dynast Mausolus. This meant an end of the Lycian dynasts. Later Wedrie was colonised by the Rhodians, and they re-named the city in Rhodiapolis.

Mithrapata was dynast of Lycia in the early 4th century BC, at a time when this part of Anatolia was subject to the Persian, or Achaemenid, Empire. Present-day knowledge of Lycia in the period of classical antiquity comes mostly from archaeology, in which this region is unusually rich. Believed to have been based at Antiphellus, Mithrapata is known to have competed for power with another man named Arttumpara.

The name of Mithrapata, which is of Persian origin, is known from Lycian coins and also from inscriptions. During the fifth and fourth centuries BC, the Lycian nobility was using Persian names, so Mithrapata may have been one of them. However, it has also been suggested that he may have been a Persian sent to rule Lycia by Artaxerxes II. Together with Pericles, Mithrapata was the last ruler of Lycia to issue coins.

After about 360 BC, the region of Lycia was taken over by the Carian dynast Mausolus. As with Pericles, the portrait of Mithrapata seen on his coins does not show him wearing the head-dress of an Achaemenid satrap, which suggests a degree of independence from the Achaemenid Empire. His name appears in the Greek alphabet as "Methrapata".

Laodicea is situated on the long spur of a hill between the narrow valleys of the small rivers Asopus and Caprus, which discharge their waters into the Lycus. The town was originally called Diospolis, "City of Zeus", and afterwards Rhodas. Laodicea, the building of which is ascribed to Antiochus II Theos in 261-253 BC in honor of his wife Laodice, was probably founded on the site of the older town.
