Ancient Coins at the Elvehjem Museum of Art
Herbert M. Howe

Coins, because of their abundance and intimate connection to the ruling elite of the ancient Greco-Roman, world offer a unique insight into the historical events of their time and into the social history of power and propaganda. This catalog illustrates and describes 193 coins from a 6th century B.C. Lydian coin to one minted at Constantinople under Theodosius I circa A.D. 380.
