Epidamnos / Dyrrhachium in Illyria


Recommended Posts

The silver drachm from this region showing a cow with calf suckling tends to be a popular coin with collectors. It is fairly readily available in decent collectable condition and remains relatively cheap for a coin more than 2000 years old.


Typically the obverse has a cow and calf, and the name of a magistrate obverse / a stellate pattern and the name of a magistrate reverse. Sometimes there is other symbols obverse. For example the second example shown has an eagle above the cow (obverse). The two shown date circa 220 BC
