Abstract

The contribution intends to present, for the first time, the analytical study of all the coins belonging to the IGCH 2132 hoard, discovered in the 1920s in the ancient Anellenic settlement of Gibil Gabib, near Caltanissetta (Sicily) and conserved in the Museum Archaeological "Paolo Orsi" of Syracuse. The study is aimed at inserting the complex in the context of the dynamics of circulation and use of money in central Sicily during the last thirty years of the fourth century. BC, a period that much archaeological literature of the last century considered permeated by the c.d. “Timoleontean revival”. Through the documentation of the coin complex and other numismatic and archaeological evidence, a different interpretative approach will be proposed to outline the historical framework of central Sicily during the last thirty years of the fourth century BC.
