CHANGE. The development of the monetary economy of ancient Anatolia, c. 630-30 BC.

Project description

Counting coins (and more) in ancient Anatolia

The latest digital technology will be used to study the monetary economy of Anatolia – spanning from the invention of coinage in the late 7th century BCE to the Romans in the region in 30 BCE. The EU-funded CHANGE project will shed light on the economic history of the area. Specifically, it will create an overview of the coinages produced by some 300 cities, four empires, six kingdoms and about 50 independent dynasts in this period and region. The data collected will be used to quantify monetary production. The project will also create the first full record of published coin finds. The next step will be to design a checklist of epigraphic documents attesting to monetary behaviour during this period. Overall, the project will provide a model for the re-evaluation of the monetary economy of the entire ancient Mediterranean region.
