One of the most interesting groups of coins dating back to the Achaemenid period forms the so-called "Satrapal Issues". The author's aim is to discuss satrapal coinage, i.e. to define the phenomenon, to determine its distinctive features and to place it correctly in the pattern of the coinage of the Achaemenid Empire. What is especially important is to indicate the exact position of satrapal coins with reference to royal and local coinages.
