HISTORY

Chersonesos was founded in the 8th Century B.C. by settlers from Thrace. They founded 12 cities. In the 7th Century B.C. Athens founded a major colony and fortified the pennisula until the persian conquest in 493 B.C. After the defeat of Persia by Athens, the Chersonese was again under Athenian rule and a member of the Delia league except for brief spartan hegemony during the peloponessian war. The 4th Century, the time in which this coin was struck, saw a bitter rivalry over control of this strategic greek foothold in Asia between Athens and King Philip II of Macedon.
