Skythia Geto-Dacians Koson Gold Stater Mid 1st Century BC
19x18mm, 8.53g

Ancient literature suggests that the Dacians, an Indo-European people, lived in the western parts of Dacia, near the source of the Danube, while the Getae lived in the eastern regions towards the Black Sea, both south and north of the Danube; it is considered that the two groups were related to an extent together with the Thracians. The name Koson refers to the inscription on the obverse, possibly the name of an unrecorded Dacian king.

This coin comes with an old collectors ticket.
