Derose-Evans, J. The Joint Expedition to Caesarea Maritima Excavation Reports. The Coins and the Hellenistic, Roman and Byzantine Economy of Palestine. American Schools of Oriental Research, 2006. Quarto, pp. 240 pages, 7 plates. Casebound. This recent volume presents the numismatic results from the nineteen seasons of fieldwork by the Joint Expedition to Caesarea Maritima (1971-1987 and 1993-1993). The expedition recovered just over 8,000 coins, of which about 2,700 were datable between 350 B.C. and A.D. 640. The volume provides a complete descriptive catalogue of the datable coins along with a separate section illustrated with colour photographs of a spectacular hoard of 99 gold Byzantine solidi of Valens and Valentinian I discovered in 1993.
