Un elmo particolare su un tetradramma seleucide

Recommended Posts

apollonia

Salve

Diodoto era un generale seleucide fedele ad Alessandro I Bala, che alla morte del sovrano nel 145 a. C. acclamò re il figlioletto del defunto Antioco VI Dioniso, assumendo la tutela del bambino. Mentre Demetrio riuscì a conquistare la capitale seleucide Seleucia sul Tigri, Antioco (nominalmente) e Diodoto (di fatto) regnarono da Antiochia di Siria, dividendo in due il dominio seleucide. Nel 140 a. C. Diodoto depose Antioco e assunse per sé il trono col nome di Trifone, sostenendo che la stirpe seleucide era finita e che con lui aveva inizio una nuova era. Le sue monete più note, tetradrammi e dramme attiche d’argento e bronzi, raffigurano sul rovescio un caratteristico elmo ornato con un corno di stambecco (ibex-horn), che nella didascalia di questo tetradramma è chiamato corno di capra selvatica (wild goat’s horn).
