Abstract:

This paper concerns two series of roman provincial coins both of the Trajan’s age (BMC, Galatia..., pp. 57-58, nos. 91-106 — see below types 1a-b - and p. 59, nos. 112-116 — see below types 2a-c): there are still many uncertainties about the mint that issued these coins. The study starts from the analysis of several hundred specimens of these types, which are part of a hoard found in 1934 in the Agora` of Cyrene. On some of these pieces archaeometrical analysis (EDXRF and SEM-EDS) has been carried out. On all the specimens of the hoard a detailed study of the dies has been conducted: it shows that there is one die-link between the first issue of these coins (1a) and the Syro-phoenician tetradrachm of 'Roman’ style' of Trajan; furthermore it allows to identify the die sequence of these issues and to assume the original number of the dies employed. All these elements, and also the pattern of the coin finds, let us presume that these issues was struck in Rome for a circulation in Cyrenaica.

The rise and fall of the Roman 'sestertius' at Alexandria / Andrew Burnett

Source:

Schweizerische Numismatische Rundschau 88 (2009) p. 225-243, pl. 17-18

Abstract:

A recently discovered and unique sestertius- sized bronze coin of Augustus can be attributed to the mint of Alexandria and is probably connected to the production of similar coins in Asia, Syria and Rome. Its discovery has also prompted a reconsideration of the production and circulation of Alexandrian bronze coins in the light of the patterns which can be observed elsewhere in the empire. It is argued that the Egyptian and non- Egyptian patterns are related, and that the large Alexandrian bronze coinage itself the drachm) was influenced directly by the Roman sestertius hence there are no larger bronze denominations in Egypt as there were elsewhere). Finally, the history of the production of Alexandrian bronze coinage in the third century is re- examined, and it is argued that the pattern is again related to the similar pattern at Rome. An appendix lists the rare and poorly documented drachms known for Claudius II. The general conclusion of this study is, therefore, that the Egyptian coinage and currency during the period of the Roman empire was less isolated and sui generis than has previously been thought.

Abstract:

This article offers an explanation for the sudden appearance of the image of a crocodile on certain, specific Roman coin issues in the last years of the Republic, and its reappearance in the early years of the Principate. It will suggest that the crocodile was specifically selected for Cleopatra Selene by Cleopatra VII, and that this selection was intended to recall a significant event that occurred at the foundation of the Ptolemaic dynasty, comprising part of a wider strategy of reconstituting the empire of Ptolemy I Soter and Ptolemy II Philadelphos. As a result, the image was subsequently utilised on Octavian’s gold and silver AEGVPTO CAPTA coinage, the bronze Nemausus coinage, and the coinage of Juba II of Mauretania, all of which either alluded to, or directly referred to, Cleopatra Selene

Abstract:

The Treasure of Roman 'nummi (folles)' discovered on 17 February 1981 at Suk El Kedim, near Misurata (Libya), is one of the biggest finds of silvered bronze coins struck in the Late Roman Empire (108.000 items dating from 294 to ca. 333 A.D.). In the present paper Salvatore Garraffo, Director of CNR Institute of Technologies applied to the Cultural Heritage, charged by Libyan Authorities with the study of the Treasure, gives the latest research’s outcomes, by discussing in detail the remains of the ancient building found in the same archaeological area, the mapping of the different clusters of coins and their precise chronology. A special attention is addressed to characterize the ancient site, to identify the owner(s) of the treasure and to explain why the jars full of coins, earthed because of a sudden threat at the end of 333 or at the very beginnings of 334, were not retrieved later: a deadly raid of Austuriani (barbarian tribes of inner Tripolitania) is assumed.

Abstract:

Alexandrian mint during the Roman Empire struck generally only bronze or billon coins. This rule has been violated in AD 69 when Vespasian came to rule, and gold coins with the portrait of the new emperor were struck between AD 69 and 70. These coins are rare and most probably were used outside Egypt, possibly before Syrian mint started producing gold coins.

Abstract:

The Graeco-Roman Red Sea port of Berenike has been a place of archaeological excavations since 1994. The studies have proved that it had been a centre of commercial contact between the Roman Empire and Persian Gulf, Arabia, Sri Lanka and India. Coin finds from the site can, in a way, reflect these contacts, even though the trade had supposedly been conducted by barter.

Abstract:

Can we speak of a monetary economy beyond the boundaries of the African provinces of the Roman Empire? Starting from the discovery of a Roman coin at Aghram Nadharif (Fezzan), the paper aims to answer this question through a general re-examination of numismatic evidence in Tripolitania and Fezzan. The archaeological evidence supports a tendency towards the progressive but not homogeneous decrease of monetary circulation going from the Mediterranean coast to the interior: while the Tripolitanian countryside fell fully within the monetary orbit of the coastal cities, the final monetary link in Tripolitania was represented by the limes belt. In the forts and military outposts, which also acted as stations on the caravan routes, the coinage arriving as part of salaries and donativa, or as a result of commercial traffic, unlikely spread beyond the surrounding vici: the dense settlements in the predesert of the large widian did not develop a genuine monetary economy. The penetration of Roman coinage beyond this boundary belt to the Garamantian area delineated another monetary isohypse: however, the Garamantian economy could not have been fully monetary in the classic sense of the word. Finally, in order to understand the role of imported coinage in the Garamantian kingdom, the research extends its horizon to other African states and tribal entities with which the Garamantes should come into contact in the complex Saharan network of long-distance caravan trade.

The Tripolitanian countryside and a monetary economy : data from the archaeological survey of the territory o  'Leptis Magna' (Libya)

Source:

Journal of Archaeological Numismatics 3 (2013) p. 67-88

Abstract:

In identifying forms of a cash economy in the countryside of Roman times a persisting problem is the shortage and dishomogeneity of numismatic documentation. The findings from investigated sites and the occasional recoveries of hoards appear a sort of window of archaeological and numismatic visibility in a rural environment apparently characterized by a lack of metallic currencies, as shown by the majority of archaeological surveys, which seldom recover coins, and then in minimal numbers. As a consequence, the spatial dimension of monetary circulation in rural areas still remains difficult to define. The survey conducted by the University Roma Tre in the territory of Leptis Magna (Tripolitania, Libya) could help to fill this gap. Thee surfaces of the settlements identified have produced abundant numismatic material, which give a reasonable idea of the monetary circulation in rural Tripolitania.

Abstract:

The iconography of the coinage issued by the Mauretanian king Juba II (25 BC–AD 24) has long attracted interest, even though a chronological classification of this coinage has been lacking. The present article offers for the first time a die study of all the dated silver coins minted in the name of Juba II. Six hundred and seven coins, divided into 69 types, have been recorded. They were issued in the regnal year 6 (20/19 BC) and then mainly between the years 30 (AD 5/6) and 48 (AD 23/24). A chronological study of the iconographic programme of the Mauretanian kingdom will now become possible and this will be presented in a forthcoming article.
