Abstract [en]

This paper presents and discusses the dates of two Koan silver issues, drachms with young Herakles/crab and club in incuse, and hemidrachms with Apollo/lyre. A date in the 190s is suggested on several grounds. Weights and diameters correspond with those of HI XII and XIII of the third century, suggesting that they followed shortly thereafter. The other Koan silver issues of the second century were minted on a lower weight-standard. The hoard IGCH 1320 contains examples of both issues, and the other Koan issues in it date to the middle and second half of the third century or the 190s/c.190. Homonyms occur in issues dating to the end of third/early second century. A connection with Kalymnos seems likely for the hemidrachms, this may suggest a date early in the 190s during the war with Philip V.
