Historical Context: Peloponnesos was a major large “island” south of mainland Greece in the Mediterrarrean Sea . Sikyon was the Capital city located on the northern edge of Peloponnesos. This area was slow to develop coinage because its needs were served by the large quantities of silver staters minted by Aigina. After the fall of Sparta , coin production flourised. By the end of the 4th Century the area was under the control of the Macedonian Empire.
