Coins from Thrace
Thrace is a geographical and historical area in southeast Europe, which is bounded by the Balkan Mountains to the north, the Aegean Sea to the south and the Black Sea to the east.

The Thracians did not describe themselves by name; terms such as Thrace and Thracians are simply the names given them by the Greeks.

Sections of Thrace started to become hellenized before the Peloponnesian War as a significant amount of Athenian and Ionian colonies were set up in Thrace before the war, and Spartan and other Doric colonists followed suit after the war. In 168 BC Thrace became subject to Rome, and in AD 46 a full province.
