Most people have some idea what Greeks and Romans coins looked like, but few know how complex Greek and Roman monetary systems eventually became. The contributors to this volume are numismatists, ancient historians, and economists intent on investigating how these systems worked and how they both did and did not resemble a modern monetary system. Why did people first start using coins? How did Greeks and Romans make payments, large or small? What does money mean in Greek tragedy? Was the Roman Empire an integrated economic system? This volume can serve as an introduction to such questions, but it also offers the specialist the results of original research.

About the Author:


W. V. Harris is Shepherd Professor of History at Columbia University.

Review:

the book represents a well thought out and balanced piece of work. Its controversial character precisely reflects the modern state of affairs in the study of ancient monetary history, but with its appearance, we have undoubtedly moved much closer to the correct understanding of what ancient money was. * Sergei A. Kovalenko, Ancient West & East * Harris has done an excellent job of bringing to the fore themes that cut across the contributions. * Vedia Izzet and Robert Shorrock * Monetary Systems serves as an excellent overview of the most interesting topics in ancient monetary history today and provides a valuable contribution to our understanding of the economic history of the ancient world in general. * Darel Tai Engen, EH.Net * This volume provides a welcome and up-to-date discussion of monetary systems in the ancient Mediterranean world. The perspectives are varied, well-researched and promise to generate significant debate... This volume illustrates the extent of these developments and raises important new questions and perspectives. * Darrell J. Rohl in Archaelogical Review from Cambridge *
