The Greek colonies in Sicily somehow managed to produce some of the most spectacular coins of the Greek World, especially during the 5th century BC. The cities waged war against each other, and yet they had time and resources sufficient to make these masterpieces.Syracuse in particular must have hosted a number of master engravers, many of which signed the coins. It is also interesting to note that the Carthaginians in Sicily made coins resembling the Greek coinage. The most likely explanation is that they used Greek mercenaries. Grade:1+/01

Between 405-390 BC, during the reign of Dionysios I, the large silver dekadrachm was reintroduced decades after the short trial issue under Demareiteion in the 460s BC. Dionysios entrusted the local master engravers Kimon and Euainetos to make the dies and the skilled masters produced highly advanced and artistic masterpieces that would inspire many die engravers in the ancient greek world. The dekadrachms of Kimon and Euainetos are among the most celebrated coins from antiquity and some reckon them as the most beautiful coins of all time. The decadrachms also reflect of the immense wealth and power that Syracuse experienced during the reign of Dionysios I. They defeated Carthage several times, built the most powerful navy in the Mediterranean and took control of large parts of Southern Italy. Grade:01
