NOORDELIJKE NEDERLANDEN (NETHERLANDS) - BISDOM UTRECHT - DAVID VAN BOURGONDIË, 1455-1496 - Gouden schild of Davidsharp z.j. (emissie 24 januari 1457), Rhenen

gewicht 3,34gr. ; goud Ø 28mm.

vz. Koning David met harp, naar links gezeten op een gothische zetel,
met voor zich het Bourgondische wapenschild, rondom de tekst;
MEMENTO:DO – MINЄ:DAVID (vertaald : Heer, gedenk David)
kz. Kort gebloemd kruis met in de hoeken een tondeldoos met vonken 
en D – A – V – I en in het hart een D. In de buitencirkel de tekst;
+ DAVID:DЄ:BVRGONDIA:ЄPISCOPVS:TRAIЄCTЄ

Kort na zijn aantreden als bisschop werd opdracht gegeven tot het slaan van munten op zijn naam. Daarbij werd onder andere gekozen tot het slaan van een bijzonder goudstuk; een gouden schild met de afbeelding van een illustere naamgenoot van de landsheer, de bijbelse koning David die als harpspeler is afgebeeld. Bij uitgifte had het de waarde van 16 stuivers. Die eerste aanmunting vond plaats in Rhenen, alwaar Dionys van Levendael werd aangesteld tot muntmeester. Een functie die hij tot circa 1478 zou beoefenen, waarna zijn zoon Lodewijk van Levendael hem opvolgde. Dit zeer bijzonder munttype, dat speciaal werd ontworpen en vervaardigd voor David van Bourgondië, kan gerekend worden tot de fraaiste goudstukken van de Bourgondische Nederlanden. Het werd maar korte periode aangemunt en de productie zal dan ook klein zijn geweest. Zeer zeldzaam.

Settlers from nearby Rhodes established a colony in 690 BC, which would become the city of Phaselis.In fact is was the only purely Greek city within Lycia. With three separate natural harbors the city soon became a major trading center. Phaselis was incorporated into the Persian Empire in 546 BC and then conquered by the Athenians under Kimon in 469 BC. In the 4th century BC Persian rule was re-established and Phaselis was allied with the satrap Mausollos from Halicarnassos. In 333-334 BC, during his campaign against the Persians, Alexander the Great and his naval fleet led by his admiral Nearchos was welcomed at Phaselis where he remained for the winter. After the death of Alexander, Phaselis was ruled in turn from Ptolemaic Egypt, Seleucid Syria and Rhodes, until 160 BC when it was absorbed into the Lycian confederacy under Roman domination.

The people from Phaselis sailed far afield from an early date, for they played a part in the trading station at Naucratis in Egypt from early in the sixth century BC or before. Their coinage was certainly one of the earliest in the area, and from the start its type bears witness to the maritime interests of Phaselis. It is the prow of a warship, which is constructed to resemble the forepart of a boar. The Phaselis tradesmen were well-known in ancient times in famous cities from Athens to Rome and Alexandria to Rhodes. But actually they didn′t have a really good reputation. A comment of the famous Greek orator Demosthenos reflects this; he characterizes the people of Phaselis as treacherous and inhumane. The famous harpist Stratonikos replied to the question of ″which people are most unreliable″, he answered ″in Pamphylia the people of Phaselis, across the world the people of Side″ . This also illustrates the rivalry between the cities of Side, in Pamphylia, and Phaselis.

Pirates under the command of Zenecites overran Phaselis and nearby Olympos in the 1st century BC until Rome re-established control in 78 BC. During the Roman civil wars, Brutus bullied Phaselis into contributing funds. When emperor Hadrian visited the city in 131, Phaselis was adorned with new statues, monuments and buildings in his honor.

Kastabala was one of the cities of the Late Hitite period, situated in the valley of the Pyramus river (modern Ceyhan river). The name Kastabala was probably of Luwian origin. The city was captured by Achaemenid Empire and became part of the Cilician satrapy and then by Alexander the Great. During the Hellenistic age it was called Hieropolis. During the Roman Empire the city was a part of Cappadocia Province. But after the Cilician pirates were defeated, Tarkondimotos, a pardoned pirate leader, became the governor of the region. The city was important enough in the Roman province of Cilicia Secunda to become a suffragan of its capital Anazarbus′s Metropolitan Archbishopric, but would fade.
