Roman Imperial Money

£12.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

The plan of this book is to present selected aspects of Roman coinage, each illustrated from a different epoch. The reign of Augustus gets the fullest coverage, with an ample consideration both of the themes presented by the coins and also the very complex organisation of the monetary system (which the author considers to have been considerably more decentralised then is currently supposed, taking full account of the discoveries of actual dies and minting apparatus which produced the coins).
There follows an account of some purely provincial currencies of the early empire, of certain kinds of quasi-metallic coin, and of the problem of early imperial counter-marks. A whole section is devoted to 'Personifications', including those of semi-divinized female personages of the imperial house as well as those more abstract concepts which attest the Roman aptitude for a complex and tortuous symbolism.

Brick red binding with gold lettering on spine. Map of The Roman Empire in the First Century A.D. on end-papers.
307 pages + 40 plates of coins at rear of book.
B/W illustrations scattered through the book.

CONDITION: Light rubbing to boards with a little fading to spine area. Ex-Library with the usual markings. Red painted page edge top side. See photos for details. Pages inside are clean and bright.
