The author considers the problem of the dating of bronze coins issued in the name of the famous Persian grandee, Tissaphernes, satrap of Lydia and Caria and karanos between the years 413-407 and 400-395 BC. Three issues of such coins are known, which are different in iconography, form, legend and metrology. They are traditionally dated to c. 400-395 BC. However, in the author’s opinion, in the light of recent discoveries and assessment concerning the launching of bronze coin production in western Asia Minor, it is possible that the dating ought to be moved to the first period of Tissaphernes in the office of karanos, i.e. to c. 413-407 BC.
