Lang, M., Kleiner, F. S. Graffiti in the Athenian Agora, Greek and Roman Coins in the Athenian Agora (Agora Picture Book 14-15))
American School of Classical Studies | 1988 | ISBN: 0876616333 | 72 pages | PDF | 11,6MB

“Return the stamnos to Philippa’s brother Philip,” “cheap wine,” “Alkaios seems beautiful to Melis,” “Of Tharrios I am the cup.” Like fragments of overheard conversations, the thousands of informal inscriptions scratched and painted on potsherds, tiles, and other objects give us a unique insight into the everyday life of the Athenian Agora. Some are marks of ownership, or the notes of merchants, but many are sexual innuendos, often accompanied by graphic illustrations. Using her wide contextual knowledge, the author suggests why these scraps of sentences were written, and what they can tell us about one of the first widely literate societies.
Over 75,000 coins have been found during excavations at the Agora, many minted in the city but others brought from Athens’s far-flung commercial contacts. In addition to the mostly bronze and copper coins themselves, a building that may have served as the Athenian mint is described in this booklet. After describing the physical techniques of production, the author takes a chronological approach and includes numerous black and white photographs, making this concise guide a useful aid to the identification of lower-value Greek and Roman coinage.

Roman Coins and Their Values. Volume III
The Third Century Crisis and Recovery. AD 235 - AD 285

2005 | David R. Sear | Spink | ISBN: 1902040694 | English | PDF | pages 536 | 93.4 Mb

The (5th) Millennium Edition. Volume One, The Republic and the Twelve Caesars. Twelve Caesars 280 BC - AD 96. 532 pages, more than 1,200 illustrations in the text. Valuations in and US$. Casebound. The original edition of Sear's Roman Coins and Their Values was published by Seaby thirty-six years ago and has been through four revisions (1970, 1974, 1981 and 1988). However, the publication of the 'Millennium Edition' of this popular work makes a radical departure from previous editions. The catalogue entries have been expanded to include a virtually complete listing of the entire Roman Republican series, as well as more comprehensive coverage of the much larger and more complex Imperial series. Greater emphasis is now placed on the precise chronology and place of mintage of each type and extensive coverage is given to the important series of billon and bronze coins struck at Alexandria over a period of more than 300 years. The valuations have been exhaustively researched from recent auction records and fixed price catalogues and many professional numismatists have contributed their valuable opinions on specific series. Prices (both in British pounds and US dollars) are now expressed in either two or three grades of preservation for each entry, usually 'VF' and 'EF' for precious metal issues, and 'F', 'VF' and 'EF' for Imperial Bronzes.
