Problems in Ancient History: The Monetary Economy from Late Antiquity to the Middle Ages

Alan M. Stahl

Back to "Fall 2020" courses

Coin evidence provides a unique view of the transition from the height of the Roman and Sasanian Empires in the first centuries CE through the development of distinctly Latin, Byzantine, and Islamic zones by the end of the eighth century. Attention is given to cases where the numismatic evidence of change and identity varies from that supplied by written, archaeological and visual sources. Each student focuses on a region of western Eurasia, considering questions of minting and circulation and does periodic seminar presentations and a final presentation on the transformation of that region.
