Description

On my poster I will present the first results from my PhD project concerned with the coinage in Khuzistan, from Alexander the Great to the End of the Sasanians (c. 325 BC – AD 642). Thus, the research project covers the periods of Seleucid, Arsacid and Sasanian dominance in the territory of Khuzistan in the present-day Iran, as well as the aspirations for independence under local rulers (e.g. the Elymaian kings). Numismatic and economic processes such as the beginning of coin use, the start of local minting and their historical effects will be addressed, as well as possible geographical and chronological range of denominations and coin types, or their further use and/or adoption.
