Trasparenze ponderali : contrappesi monetali di vetro nell’Anatolia bizantina / Michele Asolati

Abstract:

This paper starts from the discover of three glass coin weights, dating to the 6th century AD, which took place in recent years during the excavations in the site of Tyana (Kemerhisar, Turkey). The three weights are analysed as part of other discoveries of similar objects reported in literature. It results that the area of Asia Minor became particularly important within the Empire during the first centuries of the Byzantine age and that, in this context, the role of Tyana was still central.

Abstract:

Excavations at Tyana by the archaeological mission of the University of Padua (Italy) under the direction of Guido Rosada revealed a large amount of numismatic material now reached six hundred units. Most of the coins were minted in the Byzantine era, especially between the 6th and the middle of the 7th century: they are isolated finds, but one can document for the first time in Cappadocia bronze coins treasure from the 6th or 7th century. They illustrate the network of relationships and the degree of economic development of the former center of  Tyana, on the eve of the Arab invasion.

Five small bronze hoards from Sardis and their implications for coin circulation in the fifth century C.E. / Jane De Rose Evans

Bulletin of the American Schools of Oriental Research 369 (May 2013) p. 137-156

Abstract:

Five small hoards of bronze coins dating to the fifth century C.E. have been found in the excavations of Sardis, Turkey. These hoards, which close at the end of the fifth century, contain fourth- and early fifth-century coins, which some have thought had been demonetized (and thus should not be legal tender). I had argue that the fifth-century coinage was a creative mix of fourth-century coins, blanks, and official issues which were all passed as official coinage in that century; hoards of small bronze coins from the eastern Mediterranean are used to confirm the assemblages found in Sardis. The many types of coins used in the fifth century should be a warning to archaeologists to use coins only as a terminus post quem for any stratum.

Byzantine Anatolia : reassessing the numismatic evidence / Christopher S. Lightfoot

Source:

Revue Numismatique 158 (2002) p. 229-239

Abstract:

In this paper the nature and value of the numismatic evidence of Byzantine Anatolia is discussed. Finds from a number of well-known are sites are put in perspective and compared with the coins found at Amorium since 1987. The value of collections in local museums is also discussed in the light of recent publications. The conclusion is drawn that an adequate corpus of material is still lacking from sites, surveys and museums to provide a clear picture of the extent of the collapse of the Byzantine monetary economy during the Dark Ages. The material from the important excavations at Amorium would seem to suggest, however, that the use of base metal coinage in everyday life and transactions persisted throughout the period between the mid-7th and the 9th century.
