    La circulation monétaire dans le monde grec antique

    Actes du colloque internantional, Athènes, 14-17 avril 2010

    Édités par Thomas Faucher, Marie-Christine Marcellesi et Olivier Picard

    Les échanges monétaires dans l’Antiquité suivaient des circuits originaux, qui restent mal connus et peu étudiés. Le nombre de «trésors» et de monnaies de fouille s’accroît sans cesse, mais les informations qu’ils fournissent sont ambiguës et bien des conclusions paraissent contredites par les rares textes qui en font mention.
    Ces contributions au colloque Nomisma cherchent à construire une base documentaire solide, en comparant les données numismatiques et les textes, la circulation de la monnaie d’une cité à diverses époques et les arrivages de monnaies étrangères sur des sites différents.


    The movement and circulation of coinage in Antiquity followed patterns that remain poorly understood and have received little study. While the number of hoards and of coins from excavations continue to multiply, the evidence they provide is ambiguous and some conclusions even seem to be contradicted by occasional references in texts.
    These contributions from the conference Nomisma aim to provide a firm documentary foundation for comparing the numismatic and textual evidence, interpreting the circulation of a city’s coinage in different periods, and understanding the presence of foreign coins at various sites.

    MOSCHATO - Hydras St.-6097
    Moschato, Hydras St. 2 (property of D. Georgiou). Maria Petritaki (???' ????) reports on the discovery of a Hellenistic cemetery and a road (Fig. 1). The cemetery, which lies between the Long Walls, had a rubble peribolos wall, which also served as the retaining wall of the adjacent road. 19 burials were excavated: 6 cist graves, 4 pyres, 1 stone theke containing a kalpis (Fig. 2), 6 tile graves, 1 inurned cremation and 1 pit grave. All but two graves had burial offerings. One of the cist graves contained three burials. One of the graves contained 131 unguentaria, while another 112 such vessels (Fig. 3). The pyre contained a bronze coin. In addition, three locations for the placement of burial offerings were identified.
