Abstract

In 96 BC Cyrenaica, up to then under Ptolemaic control, definitively came under Roman influence. Ptolemy Apion had granted freedom to the Greek city-states of Cyrenaica, while the chora had been bequeathed to the Romans. Even the currency, which the Ptolemies basically issued for local circulation, had to conform to the new economic impulses and to the opening up of the money market. Some findings from Attica, Corinthia, and above all from the Aegean islands allow the author to outline one of the paths of dissemination of the Cyrenaean coin series from this period.
