weight 0,54gr. ; silver Ø 9mm.
obv. Head of youthful male
rev. Kneeling female, upper part of body nude, throwing astragaloi, at right lotos-plant

The game with astragaloi (knucklebones) is a game of ancient origin, usually played with five astragaloi (of a sheep). These were thrown up and caught in various manners. Sophocles, in a written fragment of one of his works, ascribed the invention of knucklebones to the mythical figure Palamedes, who taught it to his Greek countrymen during the Trojan War. Both the Iliad and the Odyssey contain allusions to games similar in character to knucklebones. Pausanius in his Description of Greece (2.20.3) tells of a temple of Fortune in Corinth in which Palamedes made an offering of his newly invented game. Children′s games were a common temple offering at some temples.

CILICIA, TARSOS - AR Stater, 333-328 BC

Balakros, 333 - 328 BC
weight 10,71gr. ; silver Ø 23mm.
obv. Baäl seated left, holding lotus-sceptre, ear of corn and bunch of grapes before, ivy-leaf and B behind, T beneath seat
rev. Draped bust of Athena three-quarter face to left, wearing triple-crested helmet, helmet in left field

Balakros, son of Nikanor, led a group of light infantery during the military campaigns of Alexander the Great. In the years 336-334 BC he was one of Alexanders′ bodyguards, together with Arrhibas, Ptolemaios, Lysimachos, Aristonos, Demetrios and Peithon. Balakros has apparently been already a Somatophylax (bodyguard) of Philip II, unless he was appointed at the time of Alexanders′accession, and served Alexander in that capacity until shortly after the battle of Issus (333 BC), when he was named satrap of Cilicia. As Alexander conquered lands formerly governed by the Persian satraps, he apparently  saw the benefits of this system and learned from it. When he conquered Cilicia, for example, he left one of his bodyguards, Balakros, in charge as satrap while he moved on to Phoenicia and Egypte. He is almost certainly the Balakros who in 332 BC joined with Antigonos, satrap of Phrygia, and Calas in completing the conquest of Asia Minor. He defeated Hyrnades and recaptured Miletos. As satrap he also controlled finances and he minted coins bearing at first his own name, later merely the letter B, as on this coin. Probably he was primarily responsible for the payment of the army during the long siege of Tyre (Phoenicia). Balakros was killed in an attempt to quell an insurrection by the Isaurians and Larandians, in 328 BC.
