Coinage in Roman Syria: Northern Syria, 64 BC-AD 253
by Kevin Butcher This substantial study provides a comprehensive and meticulous analysis of the `production, circulation and significance of coinage in northern Syria'. Supported by a catalogue of coin finds from thirteen cities, but especially from Antioch, the study presents a reign-by-reign survey of the history of coin production in the province and a discussion of its characterisation, the archaeological evidence for its circulation and the movement of the coinage beyond Syria. Kevin Butcher also examines in detail the range of denominations, types and legends and what the coinage reveals about Roman foreign financial policy.
