  Battle of Marathon - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-19)
The Battle of Marathon (490 BC) was the culmination of King Darius I of Persia's first major attempt to conquer the remainder of the Greeks and add them to the Persian Empire, thereby securing the weakest portion of his Western border.
With the failure of the Ionian Revolt (499 BC - 494 BC), Darius was intent on subjugating the Greeks and punishing them for their part in the revolt.
To accomplish the second, Darius's army, now led by Artaphernes, son of a satrap of Sardis, and Datis, a Median admiral (Mardonius had been injured in the prior attack), was dispatched in early September 490 BC to land at the Bay of Marathon and threaten an overland attack towards Athens.

Koson was one of the Thracian Kings at that time (very little is known about him but for the fact that he survived the civil wars and died in 29 BC), and it was under his authority that these coins were issued.
The style of the coin is completely Roman, though - the obverse (with the senator) copies the issue of Brutus' denarii from 54 BC (Crawford 431-433) - the senator depicted is the great M. Junius Brutus, the ancestor of the Caesar's murderer, who expelled Tarquins from Rome in 509 BC.
