    Coinage in South-Eastern Europe 820-1396 - With a New Introductory Essay, and a Supplementary Bibliography by D.M. Metcalf

    Athens: Siatras, 2016. Brand new. In English. Third augmented edition. Hard cover+jacket, 28 cm, 468 pp., maps; 8 plates; net weight 1750 gr. ISBN 978-618-82459-4-5. The author's interest in south-eastern Europe was first aroused in 1954 when, as un undergraduate, he studied the geography of the area. He has subsequently made several visits to the former Jugoslavia and Greece, in order to work on the coins in museums in Athens, Corinth, Ljubljana, Thessaloniki, and Zagreb. The present work originated in an essay which was awarded the Society's Parkes Weber Prize in 1955. From it, there grew a Ph.D. thesis at Cambridge. Then, was published as a book under the title Coinage in the Balkans, 820-1355, by the Institute for Balkan Studies (Thessaloniki, 1965). The edition was exhausted in 1966, and the book was 'pirated' in the United States. After that the text had been extensively re-written and expanded, to take account of the hundreds of new books, articles and hoard-reports; its scope had also been extended, to deal with the second half of the fourtheenth century, and with Wallachia; so, a second revised edition emerged under the slightly changed title, Coinage in South-Eastern Europe, 8201396 (Royal Numismatic Society, London, 1979). To the current third edition a new extensive introduction and an Appendix have been added, while the new bibliographical references have been incorporated into those of the previous editions; so far as it concerns the main text, this edition exactly reproduces that of 1979, except that a few spelling errors have been silently corrected. South-eastern Europe emerged from the migration period with a money economy restricted essentially to Constantinople. During the ninth century the use of a large-scale petty currency, as well as of gold and silver coinage, was restored in central Greece, and by the millenium, Byzantine copper folles were minted in remarkably large quantities, running into hundreds of millions. The spread of the money economy into the interior, however, proceeded only slowly until about the end of the twelfth century . From then on, a wide range of different coinages were used in south-eastern Europe, including Venetian, Hungarian, Bulgarian, Serbian, Bosnian, and Slavonian, the crusader issues of Frankish Greece, and coins from the cities of the Adriatic coasts, such as Kotor, Split, and Dubrovnik (Ragusa). The evidence of archaeological excavation and of several hundred coin-hoards is explored, in an attempt to assess the commercial, military, and other uses of money on pre-Ottoman times.

    Argilos - A Historical and Numismatic Study by Katerini Liampi

    Series Kerma , No. 1. Academy of Athens Award. In English; soft cover, 27 cm, 404 pp., ill. Presents for the first time the political and economic history of the ancient city of Argilos, a colony of settlers from the island of Andros that was founded on the coast of Bisaltia, between Strymon river and Chalkidike. The comparative examination of the ancient written sources together with the archeaological remains and particularly the study of the coins (corpus) produced by Argilos, enable the re-composition of the historical physiognomy of the city from archaic to hellenistic times, shedding light on evidence unknown until now. During the Classical and Hellenistic periods the political and economic situation of Argilos shows notable breaks that are connected with military operations in the region by the Athenians, the Spartans and, later on, by the Macedonian kings. Argilos underwent a steady political and economic decline beginning with the time of Philip II's expansion, when the city finally became part of the Macedonian Kingdom. The population shrank dramatically in numbers and from about the middle of the 2nd century BC onwards there is no sign of life in the city.
