This is the first full study of early Hellenistic coinage to be published. It provides a history of the coinage of Alexander the Great and his successors in the Near and Middle East, and of the cities of Greece and Asia Minor, down to the establishment of Rome as a major power in the East as a result of her defeat of Antiochus III of Syria at the battle of Magnesia in 189 BC. It is fully illustrated and will provide historians and collectors with a detailed and authoritative guide to the coinage of the period.
Reviews & endorsements
"...the editors have done a splendid job....a brilliant, thorough handbook of Hellenistic coinage for the first half of the Hellenistic Age. It will be indispensable for anyone, numismatist or not, who works in this period, and will stand as a great monument to its author." American Journal of Archaeology
