This paper deals with the finds of coins minted by
the Greek colonies on the central Dalmatian islands
originating from the Lika region. These are individual
finds from five Iapodean sites. One coin was found
in archaeological reconnaissance, while the others
are stray finds. The coins are kept in two public institutions
and in a private collection. Two coins were
minted in Pharos and three in Issa, including a very
rare issue. Most of them have not yet been published.
These coins can be dated to the 3rd century BC and
belong to the oldest currencies circulating in Iapodea.
They probably made their way there via Liburnia that
was associated whith Iapodea with the same monetary
process. These numismatic finds from the Lika region contribute to better understanding of the spatial
distribution of coins from Pharos and Issa. They
are an important indicator of cultural links between
the indigenous communities from Lika and the Greek
colonists on the central Dalmatian islands during the
Hellenistic era.
