More unknown than its namesake, but no less valuable! Emporium Hamburg presents: The silver Koson drachm after Macodonian influence!

The original tetradrachm was minted in Amphipolis, shortly after its incorporation into the Roman Empire as a province. About 100 years later, the mint masters took it as a model and created a slightly modified version.  The name "DROUEIS" refers to the tribal affiliation of Koson. Minted around the time of the Roman Civil War, Iulius Caesar and his assassination.
