By the time of the Third Punic War, Carthage had limited precious metal resources at its disposal. H.R. Baldus (“Ein 146 v. Chr. verbrannter Geldbörseninhalt aus Karthago,” Chiron 33 , pp. 195-201) has argued that this serrate gold issue was struck from the melted jewelry contributed by the women of Carthage during the summer of 149 BC after the Roman siege of the city had begun, an event noted by Diordoros (32.9).
