Viene auspicata la costituzione di un organismo centrale (l'Istituto Centrale per la Numismatica) deputato alla tutela dei beni numismatici che provveda al loro censimento, gestione, valorizzazione e fruizione. Tale struttura potrà più efficacemente operare anche nel campo della tutela e della salvaguardia dai furti e dagli scavi clandestini. (A. Carignani)

Nel 1928 il Comune di Udine ricevette in eredità la raccolta di monete di Augusto de Brandis. Vengono rievocate le vicende del lascito di una raccolta composta da 151 monete d'oro, 3073 d'argento e 15893 di bronzo. (C. Carignani)

Facchinetti, Grazia. “Iactae stipes: l'offerta di monete nelle acque nella penisola italiana,” Revista Italiana di Numismatica e Scienze Affini 104 (2003), pp. 13-55.

L'uso di gettare monete nelle acque e nelle fonti, forse di origine greca, apparve sin dall'età repubblicana, molto diffuso nell'Italia centrale, dove questa tradizione perdurò anche dopo l'introduzione del Cristianesimo. Si tratta in genere di piccole offerte di monete di basso valore alle divinità ctonie o salutari o per riti magici od oracolari. Nell'articolo, l'A. presenta una prima rassegna di esempi di questo fenomeno particolare. (A. Carignani)

Viene analizzato il significato dell'adozione del tipo di Era Lacinia, presente nelle emissioni di Crotone, Pandosia, Turi, Posidonia e successivamente esteso a coniazioni di altre città della Campania. L'A. non individua nel fenomeno una parallela diffusione del culto di questa divinità. (A. Carignani)

Un recente studio, riportato dall'A., conferma la vecchia ipotesi di Kraay che pubblicò in IGCH 1898 le monete fino ad allora credute provenienti da due distinti ripostigli rinvenuti a Crotone (n. 506 e 277 della classificazione di Noe), espungendone alcune.

Viene discussa e confutata la teoria per la quale la scelta di leggende e tipi monetali sulle emissioni delle colonie achee d'occidente derivino da miti e culti dell'Acaia. L'iconografia di queste monete si riconnette invece alle relazioni politiche esistenti tra le città achee della Magna Grecia. L'articolo si chiude con alcune puntualizzazioni cronologiche sulle monetazioni di Posidonia e di Velia. (A. Carignani)

Ripercorrendo l'opera del grande storico sardo Ettore Pais, l'A. sottolinea come, pur in una certa discontinuità o addirittura occasionalità di contatti con la materia numismatica, l'interesse dello studioso per le monete sia stato per molti versi rigoroso e corretto. (A. Carignani)

Arena, V. “New acquisitions at the British Museum: additions to Price, Alexander, and to the 1870 Larcana hoard,” Numismatic Chronicle 163 (2003), pp. 49-57, illus.

The bequests of the collections formed by Edward Gilbertson (1813-1904) and Charles Hersh (1923-99) have greatly enriched the British Museum's holdings of Macedonian regal coins in the names of Philip II, Alexander III and Philip III. They add 44 new varieties to the issues in the names of Alexander III and Philip III recorded by Martin Price, and 50 staters of Philip II and Alexander III from the Gilbertson collection probably derive from the Larcana hoard (IGCH 1472).

The author discusses the meaning of Cleopatra's much debated title "Thea Neotera", which appears on her coins struck with the portrait of Marc Antony. Based on new epigraphical evidence it is argued that the title was introduced in about 143/142 BC and thus seems to reflect the identification of the famous Egyptian queen with Aphrodite, the youthful goddess.

Viene discussa e confutata la teoria per la quale la scelta di leggende e tipi monetali sulle emissioni delle colonie achee d'occidente derivino da miti e culti dell'Acaia.

The author reviews the numismatic material, the literature, and the geographical situation of the city of Artemita.

Ancient -- Etruscan

Facchinetti, Grazia. “Iactae stipes: l'offerta di monete nelle acque nella penisola italiana,” Revista Italiana di Numismatica e Scienze Affini 104 (2003), pp. 13-55.

L'uso di gettare monete nelle acque e nelle fonti, forse di origine greca, apparve sin dall'età repubblicana, molto diffuso nell'Italia centrale, dove questa tradizione perdurò anche dopo l'introduzione del Cristianesimo. Si tratta in genere di piccole offerte di monete di basso valore alle divinità ctonie o salutari o per riti magici od oracolari. Nell'articolo, l'A. presenta una prima rassegna di esempi di questo fenomeno particolare. (A. Carignani)

Nel periodo sumerico e nella prima epoca babilonese orzo e argento rivestivano il ruolo di unità di valore, modo di pagamento e mezzo di scambio. Successivamente, l'argento acquisiva una maggiore rilevanza relegando l'orzo ad una funzione marginale. Il rapporto tra i due beni fu comunque fissato a 1 siclo per 300 litri. (A. Carignani)

Sin dall'Antico Regno, l'economia dell'Egitto fu sostanzialmente distributiva. Il potere centrale entrava in possesso dei beni prodotti e li distribuiva in varia misura fra i sudditi. In questo contesto, in cui argento, oro e rame creavano un sistema misto, risulta difficile individuare un'economia monetaria propriamente detta. (A. Carignani)

Based on comparison with Republican numismatic depictions of Aeneas carrying Anchises and the Catanaean brothers carrying their parents to safety, along with the description of the latter preserved by Claudian, the author concludes that the figures depicted on a denarius of M. Herennius represent Amphinomus carrying his mother. The purpose of the iconography was not to illustrate a special connection between Herennius and Sicily, but rather to present a famous example of filial pietas. (Oliver D. Hoover)

The author publishes a previously unknown bronze coin from Tarsus in Cilicia, struck by the "senatorial emperors" Pupienus and Balbinus (ca. February to May of AD 238. The author uses the types of this coin and others as supporting evidence for the account of the Historia Augusta in which Maximinus Thrax planned a counteroffensive against the Sasanian king Ardashir I. After Maximinus' death in the civil war, Pupienus was compelled to continue his plans in the East, but his reign was too brief to bring the enterprise to a conclusion. Coinage in the East indicated an expected imperial visit and the arrival of troops. (Gerd Stumpf and Bernhard Overbeck)

A partire dalla ricca documentazione disponibile viene ricostruito il panorama della circolazione monetaria nel Friuli fra VI e VII secolo d.C. In età longobarda, per le grandi transazioni era utilizzata una moneta d'oro, il tremisses, mentre per i piccoli scambi non esisteva una moneta spicciola di bronzo, sostituita da scambi di beni in natura.

Economides, K.N. “Byzantine folles countermarked with Heraclian monograms found in Cyprus,” Numismatic Chronicle 163 (2003), pp. 193-204, illus.

Countermarking of copper coinage by Heraclius in the Near East has not been satisfactorily explained. This countermarking probably took place in Caesarea during the Arab advance, between 634/5 and 636/7. Monograms of two types were used: the one combining the letters hR belongs to Heraclius and the other, a hRCT monogram in two forms, is probably for Heraclius and Heraclius Constantine. It is assumed that two countermarks on a large coin meant a double follis value. (K.N. Economides)

Numerose testimonianze numismatiche (rinvenimenti sporadici e ripostigli), databili fra Anastasio (491-518) e Leone VI (886-912), offrono un determinante contributo per la ricostruzione della storia degli insediamenti nella Sicilia orientale in età bizantina. (A. Carignani)

I recenti scavi italiani di Gortina, nell'isola di Creta, hanno restituito circa 2000 monete prevalentemente di bronzo databili fra la fine del III e la prima metà del IX sec. d.C. L'attenzione dell'A. si concentra in particolar modo sul panorama delle presenze monetarie in quella che viene definita la seconda Dark Age (dalla morte di Costante II nel 668 d.C. all'invasione araba dell'824 d.C.), tradizionalmente considerata come un periodo di discontinuità nel quale si registra un ritorno all'economia basata sul baratto.

A commercial parcel of dodecanummia from the mint of Alexandria, which consisted of 199 coins of Heraclius (610-641) with two facing busts on the obverse, one rather worn example with a profile bust, probably of Maurice Tiberius (582-602). It was possible to differentiate three varieties of MIB 200a. Two coins were probably contemporary forgeries. The hoard was most likely lost during the Persian invasion of c.620 or shortly thereafter. (Tony Goodwin)

A catalogue of 135 coin finds including two small hoards, and a mid seventh-century hoard of 74 copper folles from excavations by Megaw in south-western Cyprus, 1957-84. The author discusses the INPER CONST type, which is found especially in Cyprus. There are very few finds attributable to the Arab occupation of Paphos, 653-c.680, and even fewer from the so-called 'condominium centuries', c.700-965. The Crusader castle was destroyed by an earthquake in 1222, permitting a close dating of several stray finds and the small hoards. A white bezant of Hugh I (1205-18) trapped under masonry is key to the interpretation of the early gold coinage of the Lusignan dynasty. (D.M. Metcalf)

Qarakhanid coins of Tirmidh and Balkh of the second half of the sixth century AH allow us to trace the history of these towns from their capture by the Qarakhanids in AH 560/AD 1165. Balkh belonged to them till 594/1198, being ruled by five (or six?) Qarakhanids in succession. Tirmidh belonged to them, with an interval for Ghurid occupation (601-603), till 604/1207-8 inclusive, or even till 609/1212-13, when Muhammad Khwarizmshah put an end to the West-Qarakhanid khaqanate.

In una sintetica nota, l'A. riferisce delle 178 monete recuperate nel corso degli scavi eseguiti in Piazza Diuomo a Siracusa fra il 1996 e il 1997. Gli esemplari vanno dalle monete siracusane in bronzo della fine del V secolo fino ad un esemplare di 5 centesimi di Vittorio Emanuele II del 1862. Significativa è la presenza di una frazione di dirham arabo dell'inizio dell'XI secolo, ma il nucleo più consistente di monete consiste nei 77 piccoli nominali del XV secolo emessi dalla zecca di Messina sotto i re Alfonso e Giovanni d'Aragona.

During excavations in Bahrain completed in 2001, three gold dinars were recovered, which are apparently the first to have been found on Bahrain: issues of the Abbasid Caliphs Abu al-Abbas Saffah (AH 132-6/AD 749-54) and Harun al-Rashid (170-93/786-809), and the Fatamid Caliph Nezar al-Aziz (365-86/975-96). The significance of these coins is outlined and the find is placed within its regional context. (T. Insoll)

A hoard of 276 silver coins, consisting mainly of Mamluk dirhams, which is now in the Tübingen collection, can be assumed to have originated from the Aleppo region according to the provenance of the majority of its coins, particularly those near the closing date. Some hitherto unknown types of dirham are represented in the hoard, which was most likely concealed in the aftermath of the revolt of two Mamluk amirs in AH 792-3. (L. Korn)

A catalogue of 135 coin finds including two small hoards, and a mid seventh-century hoard of 74 copper folles from excavations by Megaw in south-western Cyprus, 1957-84. The author discusses the INPER CONST type, which is found especially in Cyprus. There are very few finds attributable to the Arab occupation of Paphos, 653-c.680, and even fewer from the so-called 'condominium centuries', c.700-965. The Crusader castle was destroyed by an earthquake in 1222, permitting a close dating of several stray finds and the small hoards. A white bezant of Hugh I (1205-18) trapped under masonry is key to the interpretation of the early gold coinage of the Lusignan dynasty. (D.M. Metcalf)

Shea, Karl. “The Turris Davit Coinage of Beirut: A Crusader Commemorative,” Journal of the Classical and Medieval Numismatic Society 4.4 (December 2003), pp. 169-179, illus.

The author discusses an anonymous copper issue of Raymond III of Tripoli depicting the star emblem of Tripoli and the Tower of David in Jerusalem. It is suggested that the Count of Tripoli issued this coinage to commemorate the possession of the Tower of David by his ancestor Raymond of Saint-Giles during the initial capture of Jerusalem. This was a subject worthy of commemoration for Raymond III in 1184 when he assumed the regency for the Kingdom of Jerusalem on behalf of the dying king Baldwin IV. (Oliver D. Hoover)

In the fifteenth century, the Silesian duchies coined small hellers rather than larger coins. The fragmentation of the coinage and circulation profited the dukes at the expense of the cities. Wroclaw, the main city of Silesia, had its own coinage and tried to control the other Silesian mints. By the mid fifteenth century, some agreements between smaller groups of mints had been introduced, and King Matthias Corvinus of Hungary (1458-90) subordinated the majority of Silesian mints to central control in 1475. Eventually in 1511, the Silesian heller coinage was centralized in Wroclaw. (Borys Paskiewicz)
