Despite having been one of the earliest Greek mints to strike its own silver coinage the mint at Corinth has remained imperfectly understood. In particular, we lack a relative chronology for the coin series in Ravel Period V and the absolute chronology has been in doubt. This talk will present the results of a die study of Corinth Periods V and VI coinage. As a result of the extensive die study of the drachmas from the Ravel periods V and VI we finally have a proven relative chronology for the issues of Period V and suggestions for the absolute chronology for mint production in the mid fourth to second centuries BCE.
