The goat is a predator for agriculture, and its breeding creates original societies, and a kind of seasonal half-nomadism today mainly led by the Yörüks in Aegean and Southern Asia Minor. The goat, and wild boar as well, hunting scenes, on coins, has to be explained in a social sense. The peasants have to take away the predator far from their fields.
