About this Item

Cohen: Dated Coins of Antiquity. A comprehensive catalogue of the coins and how their numbers came about, 2011, 656 pages, appendices, drawings, maps, charts, and and other illustrations; over 981 different type coins illustrated and more than 6,000 individually dated coins listed, blue laminated boards, shrink wrapped. New. Dated Coins of Antiquity (DCA) is a substantially complete catalogue of dated coins struck before the lifetime of Jesus Christ. Where a coin series such as the Biblical shekel of Tyre shown on the back cover crosses the millennium divide of 1 BC/1 AD, the catalogue continues to its last dated coin in the AD era. The coins of antiquity used various kinds of numbers and more than 50 calendar systems for dating that have no familiarity to most modern readers. The dates and their numerals on the coins serve as historical markers for early advances in recording time. As a practicing mathematician, the author explores how the Greeks, Romans, Phoenicians, Nabataeans and Jews struggled to understand their own numbers as well as those of their competitors or conquerors. Especially the Greeks and Romans across Europe, Asia and Africa experimented with their numbers. Their calendars and notations for numbers varied among cities and even over time in the same city. As expected, they sometimes made mistakes when switching to different kinds of numbers. Bookseller Inventory # 004018
