THE LEGEND OF ALEXANDERTHE GREAT ON GREEK ANDROMAN COINS
Karsten Dahmen collects, presents and examines, for the first time in onevolume, the portraits and representations of Alexander the Great on ancientcoins of the Greek and Roman periods (
c.
320
bc
to
ad
400). Dahmen offers afirsthand insight into the posthumous appreciation of Alexander’s legend byHellenistic kings, Greek cities, and Roman emperors combining an introduc-tion to the historical background and basic information on the coins with acomprehensive study of Alexander’s numismatic iconography.Dahmen also discusses in detail examples of coins with Alexander’s portrait,which are part of a selective presentation of representative coin-types. Animage and discussion is combined with a characteristic quotation of a sourcefrom ancient historiography and a short bibliographical reference. Thenumismatic material presented, although being a representative selection,will exceed any previously published work on the subject.
The Legend of Alexander the Great on Greek and Roman Coins
will be useful foreveryone in the Classics community including students and academics. It willalso be accessible for general readers with an interest in ancient history,numismatics, or collecting.
