This dissertation was written as part of the MA in Classical Archaeology and Ancient History of Macedonia at the International Hellenic University. The horse and horsemen are common and very popular depictions in all aspects of art either in Thessaly or Macedonia. In this way, the horse was a basic element in agricultural labor and an important means of transportation until the first decades of the 20th century. Furthermore, horses were used in warfare and played a crucial role in many battles in Antiquity. They were connected to several deities and to chthonic cults during the same period. Numismatics, on the other hand, is one of the most valuable tools of archaeologists and historians for carrying out the task of unraveling the past. Through the coin types we can trace the political messages which the issuing authorities wanted to diffuse to the local and foreign user of the currency as well as the cultural and sociopolitical background of their territory. The present paper deals with the horse types on the coinages of the Thessalian and Macedonian region. Starting with Thessaly, it examines the geographical distribution of the types in an attempt to detect possible affinities. Afterwards, the evolution of the types is presented identifying their political, mythological and religious context. Finally, the corresponding types on the coinages of the geographical region of Macedonia are examined, thereby comparing the types of both regions in search of iconographical affinities and common origins trying to provide valuable information concerning the political relations, common myths and cults of ancient Thessaly and Macedonia
