1970-2011 yılları arasında Kaunos kazılarında ele geçen Rhodos sikkeleri
Rhodos has had a strong navy and a rich Merchant class from the early ages. Many goods, mainly cereals, were provided by merchants from Rhodos from Egypt to the Black Sea coast; surrounding islands, small Asian coasts, and the Greek mainland. From the moment it appeared on the stage of history, Rhodos State, which has indexed its political stance to its commercial activities, has maintained its position in its region for a long time thanks to the balanced policy it has always followed. The basic parts of this policy are its relationship with Caria and the formation of Rhodos Fairy. Therefore, it is undoubtedly important to evaluate the Rhodos coins that are found during the excavations in the city of Caunos, which remained within the sphere of influence and activity of Rhodos, In addition, this research draws a general frame for the coins produced by the Rhodos mint since the foundation of the city of Rhodos in B.C. 408.
