Roman History from Coins shows how coins throw light on the events of the past. Historian Michael Grant highlights how the Roman government used the imperial currency to inform, direct or deceive public opinion. Coins were the only official announcements that the government could be sure a great many people would see and the results of this policy were startling, varied and often beautiful. The illustrations in this wonderfully informative and insightful book show 269 coins, both faces of all but twenty. Portraits of almost all Roman emperors and empresses are among them. Contents include:  List of Plates  How rulers thought of their coins  Coins and personalities  The empire on its coinage  New evidence for the past  Approach to world coinage.Contents include:  List of Plates  How rulers thought of their coins  Coins and personalities  The empire on its coinage  New evidence for the past  Approach to world coinage.
