From the Dionysus Collection.
Metapontion, located at an advantageous location in the instep of the "boot" of Italy, was founded early in the eighth century BC by Achaean colonists in an attempt to deny the site to the Dorians of Taras. The Metapontines grew wealthy from their rich grain-producing hinterland and thus a full grain ear became a common civic badge on coins of Metapontion already in the sixth century BC. This nomos illustrates the continuation of this tradition into the early Hellenistic period. This particular emission may have been struck in connection with the adventures of foreign dynasts in southern Italy. Metapontion was an ally of Alexander the Molossian during his campaigns against the Lucanians and Bruttians in 332-326 BC, but opposed Kleonymos of Sparta in 303 BC. This opposition cost the city dearly and the Metapontines were at last forced to pay exorbitant sums to Kleonymos and his Lucanian allies.
