Aigeai (AD 216-217) Tetradrachm592 viewsTime of Caracalla, 211-217 AD. Billon Tetradrachm (11.80g). About 216-217.

Unique, unpublished and very interesting type. Very fine.

The sanctuary of Asclepius in Aegeae was certainly not as famous as the ones in Epidaurus, Kos or Pergamum, but still well known. The rather unusual use of base silver for these rare autonomous issues (dated 262 and 263 of the local era = AD 215/216 ans 216-217) as well as their types refer to an illness of Caracalla and of his attempt of being healed by visiting sanctuaries of Asclepius such as Pergamum and probably Aegeae.

There has been much discussion about this fascinating obverse type.
