Description

This book will be an invaluable tool for numismatists and scholars alike, as well as for anyone interested in the Phoenician coins of Sidon, Tyre, Byblos, and Arwad. It presents a concise yet comprehensive overview of the Phoenician coin types, illustrated and presented by workshop, enabling any Phoenician coin to be identified. It gives a chronological table of Phoenician kings, tables of the forms of letters and numerals on the coins. All the main articles regarding this field of research, published by the authors and scattered throughout many international publications, have been collated and, where necessary, updated. The major conclusions of these articles have been summarized. The volume of text is separated from the volume of plates in order to see the commentary about the coin and its image simultaneously. This book also presents the new metrological method developed by the authors.
