This study intends to analyse the possible links between the choices of monetary images related to war and the coinages struck in Sicily in the Greek period by or for the mercenaries or the armies in periods of war to establish whether there was a conventional communicative code in the message, related to the war imagery, that was renewed diachronically on the occasion of new conflicts. Sicily can represent a perfect case-study to identify eventual recurrences of typological choices, as new types and iconographies are often experimented, due to its position among various cultures: Greek, Punic, indigenous and Italic (mercenaries and Rome) and also because between the Archaic and the Republican Age it was theatre of continuous conflicts, especially between the Siceliotes and the Carthaginians.

Abstract

This study intends to analyse the possible links between the choices of monetary images related to war and the coinages struck in Sicily in the Greek period by or for the mercenaries or the armies in periods of war to establish whether there was a conventional communicative code in the message, related to the war imagery, that was renewed diachronically on the occasion of new conflicts. Sicily can represent a perfect case-study to identify eventual recurrences of typological choices, as new types and iconographies are often experimented, due to its position among various cultures: Greek, Punic, indigenous and Italic (mercenaries and Rome) and also because between the Archaic and the Republican Age it was theatre of continuous conflicts, especially between the Siceliotes and the Carthaginians.
