Coins from Bruttium
Bruttium is the ancient name of the Italian region now known as Calabria - it was named after the Bruttii, a tribe originally from Lucania who conquered the region in the 4th century BC.

Many beautiful issues where struck in Bruttium in the cities of Croton, Caulonia, Rhegion, Terina, Mesma, Medma and Locri until 89 BC, where the Lex Plautia Papiria put an end to all non-Roman coinage in Italy.
