The papers in this volume reassess the role of coined money in the ancient Greek world. Using new approaches, the book makes the results of numismatic as well as historical research accessible to students and scholars of ancient history. The chapters provide a wide-ranging account of the political, social, and economic contexts within which coined money was used. In Part One the book focuses on the theme of monetization and the politics of coinage, while Part Two provides a series of case studies relating to the production and use of coined money in different areas of the Greek-speaking world, including Asia Minor, Egypt, and Rhodes as well as Greece itself. The individual chapters cover a broad chronological range from Archaic Greece to Roman Egypt. The book as a whole offers fresh insights into an important aspect of the ancient Greek economy.Table of ContentsPreface The contributors Abbreviations Introduction 1 Archaic coinage as evidence for the use of money 2 Coinage and democracy at Athens 3 The politics of coinage: Athens and Antigonus Gonatas 4 Money, freedom, and empire in the Hellenistic world 5 The politics of monetization in third-century B.C.E.
