Coins Weekly published an article about a new book relating to numismatics of Ancient Macedonia.
Yannis Touratsoglou, well-known Greek numismatist, has published a study,
which is dedicated to one of the most important kingdoms of Antiquity.
It is titled A Contribution to the Economic History of the Kingdom of
Ancient Macedonia (6th-3rd cent. BC).
Our knowledge regarding the character and the specific features of the economy
of the Macedonian kingdom from the second half of the 6th century BC to the early
3rd century BC comes limited in quantity, spread over several ancient literary
sources, and furthermore is of variable importance. It is rather impressive that
while there is a considerable number of economic studies for other areas of the
ancient Greek world, such as that of Athens, or those of the Seleucid and the
Ptolemaic kingdoms, the economy of Macedonia until recently remained in the
shadow, quite neglected by research.
The new monograph by Yannis Touratsoglou attempts to fill in this gap, tracking
down the economic data of the Macedonian kingdom alongside with the historical
events and the geographical parameters. Applying his erudition on history and
culture, acquired through his scientific involvement with this northern Greek
territory for many years, Yannis Touratsoglou thoroughly reconstructs the financial
management of the state by the Macedonian kings. With ample bibliographic
documentation he sheds light on many of the particular socio-economic circumstances,
both during the mutation of Macedonia from a peripheral entity into the regulator
of the Hellenic affairs, as well as during the time when it emerged as an
international power due to the bold campaign of Alexander the Great.
