9780520231696: Excavations at Nemea III: The Coins

The third volume in the series of final reports on excavations at the Greek city of Nemea focuses on coins recovered by the University of California (1973-1995), the University of Cincinnati (1924-1926) and by the American School of Classical Studies at Athens (1935-6, 1962, 1964). Unusually for such a site, the vast majority of the 4,092 coins have secure archaeological contexts and are identifiable, providing valuable dating evidence for dating, for the use of certain structures, for the finances of the city, for trade and for identification of travellers. Clusters of certain types of coins, and the absence of others, are also discussed for what they reveal about social behaviour. The majority of the coins date from the heyday of the site during the early Hellenistic period when the Nemean Games were at their height; the discussion plots the distribution of the coins around the key areas such as the Sanctuary of Zeus, the roads and the stadia. The extensive discussion is followed by an illustrated catalogue of the coins, including the early Christian and later coins, which forms the bulk of the study.

Product Description:

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
