A Woman, a Coin and the Prosperity of Colossae

Friday, 15 February, 1:00 pm2:00 pm AEDT

Lunchtime Research Seminar presented by Dr Rosemary Canavan

The discovery of a third coin attributed to Claudia Eugenitoriane adds another piece to the jigsaw which illustrates a history of women with agency in civic and religious affairs at Colossae. Claudia Eugenitoriane is known to have revived the mint at Colossae in the second century CE. It has often been assumed that the earthquake of 60–61 CE which severely damaged Laodikeia as reported by Tacitus (56–117 CE) in his Annals, destroyed Colossae as well. The revival of the mint indicates that Colossae did not disappear but developed and flourished beyond that time. This paper introduces this new coin, its imagery and implications of prosperity of Colossae. In addition, it highlights one woman in a history of influential women in Colossae and the Lycus Valley.
