Offered to John (Jack) H. Kroll on his retirement from the University of Texas at Austin, this volume features essays on Greek coinage, exchange, and polis economies from the Archaic to Hellenistic periods. Included in the collection are studies that explore aspects of Homeric and Archaic exchange, the law of sale, and cavalry costs. Other studies examine the social, economic and historical contexts of coinages from Abdera, Athens, “Lete,” Lydia, Mylasa, and Side, and present new interpretative approaches to “cooperative” coinage and those from archaeological sites.

Coins of the Seleucid Empire in the Collection of Arthur Houghton, Part II

After more than two decades of assiduous study and the collection of new material, the time has come for a sequel to Arthur Houghton’s Coins of the Seleucid Empire in the Collection of Arthur Houghton (ACNAC 4). This new work publishes for the first time in one place all 900 coins and related objects in Houghton’s New Series collection. The bulk of the material reflects new types, control variants, and historical-economic interpretations that have been discovered in the years since CSE was first published. Coins of the Seleucid Empire in the Collection of Arthur Houghton, Part II (ACNAC 9) follows the same easy-to-use organizational principles as Arthur Houghton and Catharine Lorber’s Seleucid Coins, Part I, and includes brief historical introductions for each ruler, commentary on remarkable coins and new attributions, as well as type, ruler, and mint indices. The book is simultaneously an expansion of Houghton’s 1983 catalogue and a foretaste of the long awaited second part of Seleucid Coins.

The first monograph in over 35 years in any language to study the coinage of classical Athens. It collects for the first time the evidence for the largest denomination ever produced by the Athenian state, the ten-drachma piece, and situates the coinage within its social, political and economic background. This book represents a huge advance on the previous study of the material, Chester Starr’s Athenian coinage, 480–449 B.C. (Oxford, 1970). Fischer-Bossert has collected more than three times as many specimens as were known to Starr, and has provided a full account of the known forgeries drawn from the photo-files of major dealers, scholars and museums. A die-study of forty genuine Athenian decadrachms in public and private collections is provided, together with a catalogue of more than ninety modern forgeries. Almost all are illustrated. This will be an indispensable work for all interested in the coinage and history of 5th-century Athens. In addition, its judicious discussion of the history of the forgery of these remarkable coins will make this volume a handbook for all serious collectors of ancient Greek coinage.

The tenth volume of Coin Hoards is again focused on ancient Greek coinage. The inventory contains records of 471 new hoards or re-evaluations of old ones, and provides an indispensable supplement to the Inventory of Greek Coin Hoards and previous volumes of Coin Hoards. Ten articles are devoted to the full publication of a series of important new hoards related to the coinage of the Seleucid Empire, and are accompanied by 67 illustrative plates. These studies constitute a major advance in our understanding of the coinage and economy of this period, both within the Seleucid Empire and in the neighboring Greek world archaeological literature, newspapers, and law reports of treasure trove cases more thoroughly than has ever been done before.
