    The tetradrachms of Lysimachos, the Hellenistic king of Thrace, became so popular during his lifetime that after his death they continued to be produced by cities on the coast of the Black Sea and by cities with trade connections in the region. They and their associated gold staters were the preferred coins of the grain trade and especially of mercenary soldiers from the Black Sea region into the first century BC.
