About this title


Since 1974 the University of California at Berkeley has been sponsoring extensive excavations at the Panhellenic athletic festival center of ancient Nemea in the modern Greek province of Korinthia. With its well-documented excavation and clear historical context, the site offers an excellent opportunity for investigation and analysis. This volume, the third in a series of publications on Nemea, is a detailed presentation of the more than three thousand legible coins from all over the ancient world that have been unearthed there. The coins, which are mostly bronze but show an unusually high proportion of silver, reflect the periods of greatest activity at the site--the late Archaic and Early Classical, the Early Hellenistic, the Early Christian, and the Byzantine. More than a compendium of data, the study breaks new ground with its analysis and contextualization of numismatic evidence in an archaeological setting.

From the Back Cover:

"In this book one finds much more than a mere compendium of numismatic data. Knapp's analysis of the coins as historical and monetary documentation of the Nemea sanctuary sets new standards of investigation and inquiry. Mac Isaac's addendum on the Late Roman and Medieval coins makes the volume complete and contains a number of original observations on the character and chronology of these low-value coins that commonly appear in nearly every Greek excavation."-John H. Kroll, Professor of Classics, The University of Texas at Austin
