Product Overview

The ancient city of Amaseia was one of the major centres of northeast Anatolia. In the Hellenistic period it was capital of the powerful kingdom of Pontus, while under the Roman empire it boasted the title of 'Metropolis and First City' of its province.
This volume presents over 4,500 coins held in the museum of the modern city of Amasya, coins ranging in date from the 5th century B.C. to the 11th century A.D. Most are finds from the surrounding region, so that there are rich holdings from the mints of Amaseia, Amisus, Sinope, and Cappadocian Caesarea; but over 50 other mints in Asia Minor are represented, and some coins come from as far afield as Alexandria in Egypt and Arles in Gaul.
