Harl, Kenneth W.  
Civic Coins and Civic Politics in the Roman East A.D. 180-275

Publisher: University of California Press, 1987 Berkeley, CA.
ISBN: 0520055527 Book. Book condition: Near Fine. Very Good. Hardcover 4to - over 9¾ - 12" tall First edition. "After the death of Marcus Aurelius (161 - 180), the Roman Empire suffered a century of political and economic upheaval that transformed classical civilization into the early Medieval world. Professor Harl has gathered and interpreted a hitherto neglected source of information for the period: thousands of bronze coins minted by the Hellenic cities of the Roman East. The declarations and depictions on these civic coins were not official imperial propaganda; rather, the affirmed traditional themes about city gods, public festivals, and temples. Civic coins, however, reveal not only the tenacity of the institutions and values of the Greek city-state but also a growing consciousness on the part of the ruling classes of their Roman identity. Professor Harl's study offers fresh insights on the continuity of the classical city during he third century crisis and raises new questions about the vitality of late paganism and the process of Christianization. The book contains 36 plates depicting 157 coins, obverse and reverse, and reproduced actual size." viii + 253 pages + 36 plates. Book is in NEAR FINE condition. Dust jacket is in VERY GOOD or better condition.
