Abstract:

The necropolis at Cadiz has provided a group of structures —wells, sinks, stone landmarks, rows of amphorae, graves filled with materials, small spaces for worship— all of which, both spatially and functionally, are associated with the necropolis and with the liturgy prescribed in funerary spheres. These structures have begun to be analyzed in detail and they are providing interesting data on the funerary arena and ritual of Cadiz. Although the research is still in its embryonic stage, it has enabled us to begin analyzing the coin finds in some of these structures. In this paper we will provide some deliberations on the presence of coinage in the Cadiz necropolis, and we will supply new data on the coin finds retrieved from the wells.

Abstract:

This paper attempts to resit archaeologycal and numismatics data in order to establish reliable references that make possible a proper understanding of the historical development of Alarcos. The study is twofold: the coinage is first considered within its archaeologycal context, and then an approach to the monetary circulation knowledge is made.

Source:

Revue Numismatique 171 (2014) p. 353-427

Abstract:

This paper focuses on the hoard of silver coins found by Gennaro Pesce in Benghazi in 1939. The hoard, originally composed by about a thousand coins, was lost after the Second World War. It has been recently rediscovered – but only partially – during the research activities carried out by the Italian Archaeological Mission of the University of Urbino at Cyrene. It consists of late Hellenistic Greek coins of the Achaean League, Sicyon, Argos, Patrae and Rhodes, as well as of Roman Republican and Imperial denarii and of provincial silver coins; the treasure closes with Trajan’s issues and its concealment must be connected with the Jewish Revolt of 115-117 AD.

Abstract:

This article presents an overview of the coins found at the site of Grumentum during the excavations of the last 15 years. The majority of specimens (ca. 400) comes from the Roman Forum, which has been extensively investigated from 1995 to 2004 by the State Antiquity Service of Basilicata, and from 2005 to present by the University of Verona. A further sample of 119 finds from other areas of the ancient town (published in the catalogue of Museo Archeologico dell’Alta Val d’Agri), of 11 specimens of the S. Marco suburban votive deposit and of 12 specimens of the necropolis discovered near the Museum in 2008 are included in the total amount of 543 coins. This documentation offers an overall picture of coin use and circulation at the site from the 6th century BC to the 6th century AD.

De Vieille-Toulouse à Tolosa : le grand déménagement des années 10/5 av. J.-C. / Vincent Geneviève

Source:

Journal of Archæological Numismatics 4 (2014) p. 1-26

Abstract:

The thousands of coins found over at least three centuries at the site of Vieille-Toulouse provides a wealth of numismatic information without parallel for the south-west of France. An exact dating of these coins allows us to pinpoint precisely the date of the abandonment of Vieille-Toulouse to around 10–5 B.C.E. This dating coincides with that of the last ceramic finds collected from the same site. The examination of these coins compared to those from the (then) newly created town of Tolosa and from the ‘Bazacle’ water-crossing (Toulouse, France) indicate that the site was abandoned – an abandonment both final and especially abrupt – in a limited period of time.

Les monnaies antiques de la colline Saint-Jacques de Cavaillon (Vaucluse) / par Gisèle Gentric & Jean-Claude Richard Ralite ; avec la collab. posthume de J.-B. Colbert de Beaulieu ... [et al.]

Source:

Bulletin du Cercle d'Etudes Numismatiques 52 (2015) 1 (janvier-avril) p. 6-22

Abstract:

This study concerns 564 coins kept in the museum at Cavaillon (Vaucluse), which have come primarily from digs and surface finds on the ‘Colline (hill) Saint- Jacques’ which dominates the local surroundings and the town of Cavaillon (Cabellio) and which was, in antiquity, an important oppidum of the Cavares peoples. These pieces are but a small fraction of the total found on Saint-Jacques since the XVIIth century. The overall density of finds is explained by the proximity of Saint-Jacques to the river Durance, which gives into both the Rhone valley and ‘Route des Alpes’. The existence of a centre of worship (cult) within the oppidum can be hypothesized given the discovery of a small number of pierced coins, which are themselves associated with small pieces of pierced bronze and (a few) silver. Two thirds of the coins are from the colony at Massalia ; the remainder is made up of coins minted in the south of Gaul, half of which are coins from Nimes and the Volcae arecomici. The coinage of Cabellio is represented by an almost complete series of small bronzes featuring a lion reverse with the legend ‘KABE’. The silver coinage of the Rhone valley is represented by a few examples and also a few coins from the interior of Gaul. The whole of the collection also includes six pieces from the Roman Republic, minted between 146 and 88 B.C.

The Amorium mint and the coin finds / Constantina Katsari, Christopher S. Lightfoot, Adil Özme

Series:

Amorium reports ; 4

Published:

Berlin : Akademie Verlag, cop. 2012

Abstract:

This fourth volume in the Amorium Monograph Series is devoted to the numismatic evidence from the ancient and mediaeval city of Amorium in central Anatolia (Turkey). It comprises two distinct parts. In Section 1 the city mint of Amorium is discussed and illustrated by a chronological and typological catalogue of known specimens. The city mint flourished from the Late Republican period until the reign of the emperor Caracalla. In Sections 2 and 3 there is a catalogue of some 730 coins dating from Hellenistic to Ottoman times that have been found at the site between 1987 and 2006. The majority of these finds belong to the Byzantine period between the reigns of Anastasius I and Alexius I and provide confirmation of the city’s enduring importance and economic vitality as the capital of the Anatolic Theme.

Abstract:

A total of 194 coins were uncovered on the eastern fringes of Tel Shiqmona; 71 of them were identified. Except for one Seleucid-period coin, minted in Tyre during the second century BCE, all the coins belong to one continuous period beginning in the early fourth century and ending with the reign of the Byzantine emperor Maurice (582–602 CE).

Source:

Revue Belge de Numismatique 159 (2013) p. 151-186

Abstract:

Belgian archaeologists have been excavating the Greco-Roman site of Apamea on the Orontes since 1928. This article aims to publish 401 coins found during excavations between 2005 and 2010 and identified on site during the summer of 2010, that is to say the second largest sample of coins found in Apamea after the sample published by Jean-Pierre Callu in 1979. These coins are presented here in their archaeological context, a public building, the Tycheion, and the North-East District, including a thermal establishment and a palaestra. Publishing these coins in their context should help to define the dating of some archaeological layers and, consequently, to specify periods of occupation of the buildings studied. The issues raised by the presence of many backfills, and by halved and imitation coins are also discussed.

Georgi Dobrevo/2000 reconsidered : note on an 1st century BC coin hoard from Thrace / Eugeni I. Paunov

Source:

Ancient West & East 12 (2013) p. 281-294

Abstract:

This note deals with a hoard of five silver coins from south-eastern Thrace. In the original publication these coins were described with errors and wrong identifications, thus a revision and reinterpretation is offered here. The hoard from Georgi Dobrevo is an unusual association of two Republican denarii, two imitative tetradrachms of late Thasos type in barbarous style and one broken piece – a rare tetradrachm of Ilium in the Troad. An overview of the historical, geographical and numismatic background of this hoard is given in order to elucidate its precise position and significance.

The coin hoard of Abasár / Melinda Torbágyi, István Vida

Source:

Dissertationes Archaeologicae ser. 3 1 (2013) p. 7-20

Abstract:

The composition of the small hoard found on the northern edge of the Great Plain is very interesting and unique in Hungary, as Celtic tetradrachms and small change were hidden along with Roman Republican and Imperial denarii. The peculiar composition of the hoard suggests the treasure was aggregated by several generations of the owner’s family. The silver ingot indicates that the hoard was treated as bullion rather than money, which attests the lack of regular coin circulation in the Celtic Carpathian basin. The Lapujtő type coins of the hoard denote eastern connections, they probably mark the arrival of Celts fled before the Dacians. The Roman coins might indicate the establishment of an ally system as a part of the Augustean foreign politics, and based on the coins it existed even during the reign of Tiberius.
