From Coins to History: Selected Numismatic Studies
Harold B. Mattingly has always helped direct numismatic and epigraphical studies, and his work has often sought and defended unorthodox positions in the fields of numismatics and epigraphy. Here is a collection of his numismatic papers, with short introductions written by the author, revisiting his arguments. Gathered into an easily accessible volume, this collection of essays ranges over the field of Greek and Roman coinage, presenting a series of papers that helped change our interpretations of numismatic evidence. Because many of these papers are hard to find, collecting them in one volume will be of particular use to libraries, graduate students, and scholars.
Harold B. Mattingly is a retired Professor of Ancient History at Leeds University, and current president of the Royal Numismatic Society.
