Fondation Nationale De La Recherche Scientifique; 379 pages; Au cours du IVe siècle avant J. -C. , certains royaumes chypriotes frappent des monnaies d'or, phénomène d’autant plus remarquable qu’en dehors des dariques en or du Grand Roi achéménide, la frappe de ce métal est extrêmement rare avant l’émission de statères d’or de Philippe II de Macédoine. Quels sont les rois chypriotes qui ont frappé des monnaies en or ? Dans quels royaumes, quand et pourquoi ? D’où provient l’or ? Les émissions sont-elles régulières ? Quel est le rapport entre ces monnayages et l’histoire politique de Chypre ? Quelle est la place de ces monnaies dans la circulation monétaire de l’époque, quel est l’étalon monétaire utilisé et le taux de change entre le monnayage en or et celui en argent ? La réponse aux questions posées ci-dessous sera donnée à partir du corpus par coin des monnaies en or des rois de Chypre et à partir de leur métrologie et de leur composition métallique. Dans ce livre, où le témoignage des sources littéraires, épigraphiques et archéologiques est associé à celui des monnaies, la politique monétaire des rois chypriotes est analysée afin d'éclairer l’histoire de Chypre jusqu’à la fin des royaumes autonomes.

9963428134 Very faint bump to top of spine else fine. ; Stapled booklet. Metcalf examines how coinage can provide evidence for the study of the changing prosperity of Medieval Cyprus. Following an overview of his subject, the author focuses on two examples: the first concerns the effects on monetary economy caused by the loss of Famagusta to the Genoese in 1371. The second explores the effect of the Arab raids on the coinage of Cyprus during the second half of the seventh century. Both examples shed light on the methods required for establishing the relation between Coinage and History. The first half of the publication makes reference to James R. Stewart and the Stavrokonnos hoard. The presentation is completed by two annexes. ; Lectures on the History of Coinage- 4; 42 pages

42 Paul, George MacKay & Michael Ierardi (eds.) ROMAN COINS AND PUBLIC LIFE UNDER THE EMPIRE E. Togo Salmon Papers II
University of Michigan Press 1999 Hardcover Fine in Fine dust jacket 
0472108751 Dustjacket is protected in mylar. ; 0.72 x 9.48 x 6.2 Inches; 216 pages; Roman coins often shed light on Roman public life and society through the legends, portraits, and images they bear. The papers collected in this volume were originally presented at the Second E. Togo Salmon Conference on Roman Studies. The eight contributors are specialists in Roman coins or Roman history and in the relations between them. Coins are a unique source of information about the Roman world. In the case of the Roman Empire they were issued by or with the approval of the ruling power. The representations and legends they show therefore present an official view of contemporary affairs. The coins themselves, minted for official purposes such as paying the army, when studied carefully can help reconstruct official policies. They can also occasionally reveal what monuments now lost may have looked like. It is not infrequent to come across pleas that the ancient historian should make more frequent use of numismatic evidence. These essays make clear that efforts are being made both by numismatists and by historians to bring the two disciplines together. At the same time the papers reveal that the task is by no means a straightforward one. The survival of Roman coins is variable, and so attempts to reconstruct the size and distribution of issues calls for skilled and experienced analysis. This collection of papers provides evidence for the kind of deductions that the historian may make from Roman coins as well as the illustrations of the pitfalls that await the unwary. Those interested in Roman history, amateur coin collectors, and professional numismatists will all find much here to widen their knowledge of the public context of Roman coins.
