Abstract

Ptolemaic coins rarely crossed Egyptian borders. When they did, they usually followed specific routes and occurred within a given period of time. In the Ptolemaic case, it is therefore possible (almost exclusively) to add a third intermediate date to the two best-known moments in the life of a coin (issue and hiding), i.e. a presumed moment of leaving Egypt and the Ptolemaic territories. The presence of about 80 Ptolemaic and Cyrenaean specimens possibly found in the Veneto and Friuli regions allows us to deduce a penetration of these coins in the latter areas during the late Republican period, but above all in the early Imperial period, in full agreement with data known for other “Ptolemaic” marginal areas.
