An expanded special edition in celebration of the 150th anniversary of the American Numismatic Society. This anniversary volume is the largest ever AJN with over 600 pages of text plus 117 plates written by over 30 contributors, including Curators and Trustees, past students and visiting scholars in the ANS’s Graduate Summer Seminar, as well as recipients of the ANS’s Archer M. Huntington award for outstanding career contributions to numismatics. Deserving special mention is Edward T. Newell’s (1886–1941) posthumous contribution, “Coins from the Excavations at Beisan (Nysa-Scythopolis, Tel Beth Shean): 1929–1935.” One of the preeminent numismatists of his and subsequent generations, Newell was an ANS President, Huntington Medal recipient, and stands among the Society’s greatest benefactors. It is most fitting that his lost manuscript was discovered and edited in time for inclusion in this anniversary volume.

The coinage struck posthumously in the name of Faustina the Elder, wife of the Roman emperor Antoninus Pius, was the largest such issue ever produced by the mint of Rome. Until now it has been impossible to date these coins with any accuracy, and thus difficult to determine their place in imperial ideology. This study definitively resolves the chronological difficulties of these undated issues by means of die study of Diva Faustina’s gold and bronze coinage. This new understanding of the coinage then forms the basis for a study of the iconographic commemoration of Faustina in all media throughout the empire. It sheds significant new light on the changing nature of the cult of Faustina during (and perhaps after) the lifetime of her husband Antoninus Pius, on the nature and mechanisms of family commemoration in the Antonine period in general, on the cult of the divi divaeque, and especially on the role of imperial women, living and dead, in the presentation of the public image of the emperor both in Rome and in the provinces. The volume contains illustrated catalogues of the sestertii and aurei in the name of Diva Faustina, including forgeries and a statistical analysis, co-authored with Warren Esty.

Roman Provincial Coinage, Supplement 3

Roman Provincial Coinage, Supplement 3

The aim of the Roman Provincial Coinage (RPC) series is to produce a standard typology of the provincial coinage of the Roman Empire from its beginning in 44 BC to its end in AD 296/7. The publication of RPC vol. 1 (44 BC–AD 69) in 1992 marked the start of this international initiative, which will comprise ten volumes in all. RPC is under the general editorship of Andrew Burnett and Michel Amandry formerly of the British Museum and the Bibliothèque nationale de France respectively.

The first Supplement to RPC was published in 1998 and covered much new material that had appeared for the Julio-Claudian period between the date of the first publication of RPC I in 1992 and 1997. The second reprinting—in 2006—of RPC I was the occasion to publish also a second Supplement to RPC. This new Supplement, Supplement 3, includes new material from 2005 to 2013, and covers the Julio-Claudian period (RPC I), the Flavian period (RPC II) as well as the coinages of Gordian I to Gordian III struck in the province of Asia (RPC VII, 1).
