Ancient Coinage of Sicily, Hipana


Hipana, on the Monte dei Cavalli near modern-day Prizzi (near Panormos), was first mentioned by Polybius in connection with the first Punic war in 261-258 BC. Catalogs list only two coins, one silver (with IΠA) and one bronze, although this page lists two bronze coins.
