Die antike Munze als Fundgegenstand : Kategorien numismatischer Funde und ihre Interpretation Paperback / softback

Description

Interpretation of coin finds is not quite an easy thing.

How to distinguish, e. g., material of `hoards' from that of `votive deposits'?

Where are the `border lines' dividing numismatic find categories from each other?

Questions like these deserve a closer scrutiny. This book tries to face the problems by: proposing clear definitions for categories and sub-categories of coin finds; by collecting and interpreting written testimonies (from ancient literature, epigraphy and papyrology) casting light on reasons and circumstances of coin deposition and coin loss in antiquity; by describing differences of composition between the categories; by discussing difficulties of `differential diagnosis'; and the role of secondary finds.

For each problem and for each find category a large number of examples is offered.
