• Zaeelii


    • Zaeelii is the name of an ancient tribe in Northern Greece known only from silver coins bearing the name. This class of coins may be comparated with that issued by the rude Thraco-Macedonian tribes, such as the Orrescii and Zaeelii. In both cases the possession of silver mines prompted barbarous peoples to issue coin at a far earlier period than that at which in the ordinary course of things, need for a coinage would have reached them.
