Monedele celto-dacice de tip Şilindia. Problema variantelor şi studiul ştanţelor / Şilindia Type Celtic-Dacian Coins. The Matter of the Variants and the Dies' Study
|Limba de redactare||română|
|Excerpt||The topic of this article is the lesser known coin-type named “Şilindia”. Following a brief introduction of the presence of these coins in the hoard from Şilindia, the only known find until now, we proceed to a dies study. The starting point is represented by the research of Eugen Chirilă and his collaborators on the 90 coins of this type from Şilindia hoard. The results obtained by the editors interpreting the connections between variants and the unclear numbering of dies determined us to check the die corpus and to verify the viability of the variants. The die identification was made using the digital over-lay method, by superimposing the digital drawings on top of each other in Corel Draw software, which eliminates the difficulties of visual examination.
The new corpus contains four obverse dies instead of eleven and eight reverse dies instead of more than ten (the number is unclear) as the editors of the Şilindia hoard claimed. Giving up links between variants, which in some cases proved to be wrong composed, we use the relationship between dies and the diagrams of the die combinations (die charts) to identify the characteristics of the minting process for these coins. Finally, we analyzed the relationship between the Şilindia coin-type and the so-called “Mit Wulstlorbeer und Reiter” (apud K. Pink) or Agriş B – Şilindia / Şilindia “apropiat de prototipul postum Filip II” (apud C. Preda) coins.
