Coins and their cities: Architecture on the ancient coins of Greece, Rome, and Palestine

Click for a larger photo
"Ancient coins illustrate more than a thousand different buildings most of which are now lost without a trace. We tend to forget that a line of foundations stones is all that remains of human effort of planning and labor which goes into the erection of an architectural monument; and it is therefore salutary to begin this study by comparing extracts from letters sent by a provincial governor to the emperor at Rome, dealing with the construction of just buildings on coins."

Dated Coins of Antiquity

Click for a larger photo
Dated Coins of Antiquity is a near complete catalog of dated coins struck before the lifetime of Jesus Christ. Where a coin series such as the shekel of Tyre crosses the millennium divide, the catalog continues to its last dated coin in the common era. The catalog describes more than 900 different type coins struck in gold, silver and bronze, exceeding 6,000 different dated coins, dozens of which are cited in no other catalog. It corrects the misreading of dates in earlier references and updates the dating of coins according to current research.
