The Coins from Maroneia and the Classical City at Molyvoti
Athens: Institute of Greek and Roman Antiquity 2008, softcover, 21X28 cm, 437 pp., ill., 132 Euros
Zone, a little known urban site on the Aegean coast of Thrace, was excavated under the auspices of the Greek Archaeological Society; the found coins were summarily listed and reviewed in a 1996 article by Mina Galani-Krikou. A third of these 2229 coins are the critically important coins of Zone that made possible the site's very identification.
In the present volume Selene Psoma of the Research Centre for Greek and Roman Antiquity (National Hellenic Research Foundation), Chryssa Karadima and Domna Terzopoulou of the XIX Ephorate of Prehistoric and Classical Antiquities (Ministry of Culture of Greece) now give us not only a welcome second publication of site coins excavated in Aegean Thrace but one in extended monograph form with commentaries and full attention to numismatic detail. Notably, the study treats the coins from two sites, one that has long been recognized as Maroneia, the other a previously unidentified city site on Cape Molyvoti.
