ANA - Part of the Summer Seminar course samplers. When Octavian (later known as Augustus) defeated Mark Antony and Cleopatra in 30 BC, he took possession of Egypt and isolated it and its economy from the rest of the Roman Empire. One of the results of this isolation was a coinage system that would combine three of the great cultures/civilizations of the ancient world: Egypt, Greece, and Rome.

This presentation will give an over view of Roman Egyptian (sometimes called Alexandrian, after the mint city) coinage, from Augustus to Diocletian, with a focus on the fascinating reverse types used on the drachm - the largest bronze denomination produced at Alexandria. Presenter: Kerry Wetterstrom
