Monumental Coins - (Book Review)

Library | Juno Moneta

Collecting ancient coins depicting ancient architectural buildings, temples, and monuments is a popular specialist area of ancient coin study. This popular book on the subject reviews many of the most famous structures to appear on ancient coins, including the Temple of Jerusalem. The book is full of maps, architectural drawings, and line drawings of coins that allow the reader to see the smallest details. Many temple lay-outs are included so that the scale of the buildings, often just seen from the entrance, can be appreciated. This fine hardback volume is a medium-large format of 242 pages and was published by Krause in 1999. The book was written by Marvin Tameanko. Prices for the book are very low ($12.30 on Amazon) considering the quality and interesting reading contained in this book.

The book has 6 parts with several chapters covering specific subjects in each chapter. The 4 subject parts are:
1) Early Architecture on Coins; 2) Engineering and Architecture on Coins; 3) Roman Temples on Coins; 4) Roman Structures and Monuments.
Additionally, there's an Overview part and Appendices that include a Glossary, Index and eight pages of plate coin photographs.
