Quote from CNG 

"
By the early 4th century BC, Syracuse had become highly factionalized, and the Carthaginians took advantage of the political turmoil by supporting Hiketas against their enemy, Dionysios I. Eventually a delegation was sent by the Syracusans to Corinth to appeal to their mother city for help. Timoleon was chosen to take control of Syracuse, drive the Carthaginian-backed government from power, and restore the tranquility and prosperity of the great Sicilian city. In this endeavor Timoleon was successful, and his rule sparked a cultural and political revival. This revival is reflected in the city's coinage, with the introduction of many new types and denominations. "
