Hoards of Information: The Importance of Coin Hoards and the Value of their Publication
Coins hoards represent an important source of information on the ancient world, yet without full publication their benefit to academia is limited. This paper will introduce the different types of coin hoards and discuss what methods scholars use to tease information out of them. In addition to providing examples of how coin hoards have contributed to our understanding of the Greek and Roman world, this presentation will also present a few case studies of hoards studied by the author from both museum and excavation contexts, including one from excavations at Humayma Jordan.
