Pflanzenbilder auf griechischen Muenzen


An almost inexhaustible supply of floral stamps and engravings were used on Greek coins. The result is often a work of art and is also a testimony to Greek knowledge and appreciation of plants and trees. This slim and attractive book is arranged by plant order and photographs of the plants are accompanied by representations on coins. The study reveals associations between plants, deities and animals and the prominence of plants in political crests or motifs. There is also a catalogue of Greek and Roman authorities on the subject. The book will equally appeal to scholars of ancient botany and coinage.
