the book represents a well thought out and balanced piece of work. Its controversial character precisely reflects the modern state of affairs in the study of ancient monetary history, but with its appearance, we have undoubtedly moved much closer to the correct understanding of what ancient money was. * Sergei A. Kovalenko, Ancient West & East * Harris has done an excellent job of bringing to the fore themes that cut across the contributions. * Vedia Izzet and Robert Shorrock * Monetary Systems serves as an excellent overview of the most interesting topics in ancient monetary history today and provides a valuable contribution to our understanding of the economic history of the ancient world in general. * Darel Tai Engen, EH.Net * This volume provides a welcome and up-to-date discussion of monetary systems in the ancient Mediterranean world. The perspectives are varied, well-researched and promise to generate significant debate... This volume illustrates the extent of these developments and raises important new questions and perspectives. * Darrell J. Rohl in Archaelogical Review from Cambridge *
