About this item

This volume is the first comprehensive look at Syrian coin hoards and contains a catalogue of every coin hoard discovered in what is now modern Syria through 2010. Duyrat explores the definitions of "hoard" and "treasure", explores the circulation of currency in the ancient Levant, and considers excavation coins as well as the phenomenon of coin hoard discoveries during times of regional conflict. This is essential reading for anyone seriously interested in the origin of coin hoards in Syria, and how war effects the archaeological record, specifically through the lens of numismatics.
