Demos: The Personification of the People

eBook (PDF), 145 Pages
(1 Ratings)
Price: $15.00
The image of Demos, the personification of the People, was used on ancient coinage as early as the 5th century BC. In Roman times, many towns under Roman domination struck pseudo-autonomous coinage depicting either the bust or head of Demos, or showed him standing with the emperor, Boule, or the Demos of another city. This book is - as far as I am aware - the first ever compilation of coinage depicting Demos and includes full legends and descriptions as well as several otherwise unpublished types. The pages are enhanced by hundreds of images of examples. An index of types and cities simplifies the search for a particular coin.

    An important reference for ancient coin dealers and any collector interested in coins depicting Demos. Lists 868 coins. This is the first reference I will turn to when I have Demos coin type to identify or properly describe.
