The Penkalas Hoards, discovered during the 2019 excavations of the ancient city of Aezani in the region of Phrygia in Turkey, represent invaluable evidence for understanding circulation patterns in the region—and of the Roman Province of Asia as a whole—in the first years of the Augustan Age. Penkakas I Hoard contains 655 coins, 439 of them denarii and 216 cistophori, and date to the 1st century BCE. Penkalas II Hoard contains 10 cistophori and date to the second half of the 1st century BCE. Very few hoards that include a mix of denarii and cistophori have ever been found and even fewer come from documented archaeological contexts. Join Assistant Professor Hüseyin Köker (Suleyman Demirel University) and ANS Assistant Curator of Roman Coins Lucia Carbone for a discussion on these important, newly-discovered hoards.
