Summary
This collection of essays presents a set of debates about what money was in antiquity and how it functioned. The focus is mainly on the Greeks, who were not the original inventors of coinage but were responsible for its widespread adoption, and on the Roman Empire, which developed one of the most complex of known pre-modern economies
