Excerpt from The Numismatic Chronicle and Journal of the Royal Numismatic Society, Vol. 15
Like those of the Aeginetans17 in the west of the Aegean, the commercial Operations of the Chians radi ated from Ionia in all directions, and even imposed their monetary standard on som... e of their customers. The importance of the Chian standard, which has lately been so ably demonstrated,18 made it the principal rival of the Aeginetic and the euboic-attic systems in the East up to the time of Alexander the Great. A little speculation as to its origin would perhaps not be misplaced before entering upon a detailed description of the coins themselves.
