Coinage of the Caravan Kingdoms. Studies in the Monetization of Ancient Arabia
Item Reference: BKS915
Huth, M. Coinage of the Caravan Kingdoms. Ancient Arabian Coins From the Collection of Martin Huth. 2010. 162 pages, b/w illustrations throughout. Casebound, jacket. This impressive reference provides the most comprehensive and detailed survey of ancient Arabian coins since the British Museum catalogue published in 1922 and has been published alongside 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, and 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 – this volume will serve as a reference volume for Arabian coins for years to come.
