Description

Sicily has been the focus of numerous representations on Roman coins, from the early Republican coinage to the Augustan period. This contribution offers a comprehensive and up-to-date numismatic study of the main gold and silver issues which refer to the first province of Rome. The iconographic analysis, the study of the circulation of coins and the quantification of each series adds to our knowledge of the evolution of the image of Sicily over nearly three centuries; drawing attention to similarities and echoes between the different series; improving our understanding of the place occupied by this province in the successive power struggles which punctuated Roman political life.
