Coinage of the Caravan Kingdoms


ACNAC 10 accompanies the ANS's Coinage of the Caravan Kingdoms: Studies in the Monetization of Ancient Arabia. Built over the last 20 years, the Martin Huth collection of pre-Islamic coins covering all parts of the Arabian Peninsula represents the largest assembly of such material ever put together, exceeding by far the holdings of existing Museum collections. 480 coins are fully described and illustrated on more than 70 plates. A comprehensive epigraphic index lists all inscriptions and monograms found on these intriguing series. Together with its sister volume - where many of the collection coins are discussed in detail - ACNAC 10 will serve as a reference volume for Arabian coins for years to come.

Reviews & Quotes

"...there is no question that these volumes together represent a major contribution to scholarship on ancient Arabian numismatics and on numismatics generally. The long labour of both contributors and editors of these volumes is most fruitful and will stand for a considerable period of time.'"
Peter Edwell, Macquarie University
Bryn Mawr Classical Review (May 2012)
