Wayne G. Sayles, Executive Director of the ACCG delivered a presentation on the Geography, History and Coinage of Mallos in Cilicia to the Twin Cities Ancient Coin Club on Tuesday, April 24.
Wayne Sayles was the featured speaker at the TCACC meeting for April 2007. The Twin Cities Ancient Coin Club is one of the most active ancient coin clubs in the United States. Meetings are held monthly at the Emmanuel Lutheran Church in St. Paul, Minnesota. The TCACC is an Affiliate Member of the Ancient Coin Collectors Guild.
The talk by Sayles focussed on the location of Mallos, which is a continuing enigma, and the evolving coinage that was struck at the Mallos mint during antiquity. Sayles and Bekircan Tahberer of Vancouver, Canada are co-authoring a book on the mint, its history, and its coinage.
The TCACC normally meets on the third Thursday of each month in St. Paul but held the April meeting two days early in consideration of the Chicago International Coin Fair which opened on Thursday of that week. Several of the club members were present in Chicago for the show and for the scheduled ACCG meeting there.
