Zum Inhalt

This book describes the monetary and economic transition from the Late Hellenistic period to early Roman domination in the provinces of Moesia and Thracia (ancient Balkans). The evidence examined covers over 250 years, from the establishment of the province of Macedonia in 146 BC down to the reign of emperor Trajan (AD 98–117). Through the means of coins, the main tendencies and phases in the process are tracked down. For this purpose, both the collective hoards and the single ‘stray’ coins are discussed extensively. Of foremost importance in this process are the introduction, distribution and use of the denarius in the local coin market.

The study reveals the dominating military nature of the Roman monetary policy in the region. Based on comprehensive analyses, the book concludes that the nature of the Thracian and Moesian society and economy, as well as the supply of coins, followed the Imperial and interregional trends as an integral part of the Roman Empire.
