Riassunto: Coin finds are an integral part of the archaeological record. By studying coins in the contexts in which they were found, a great deal of information can be gained on how coins functioned in past societies. Where archaeology and numismatics are truly combined, the enormous potential of this approach is apparent. The conclusions contribute to our understanding of the use, loss and deposition of coins in antiquity, their circulation speed, the manner and pace in which coins were brought into a society, etc.; conclusions which are not only of interest to numismatists, but also to archaeologists, anthropologists and historians alike.
In order to discuss theories and methods for this particular approach, the conference 'Coins in Context' was held in Frankfurt am Main in October 2007. The majority of the papers presented at the conference, as well as some further solicited papers on the subject, are presented in this volume. The first group of papers gives an overview of the theoretical and methodological status questions of contextual numismatics, while each of them explicitly points out promising directions in future research. The second group of papers focuses on the possibilities of a close study of coins and associated archaeological contexts at the level of a single site. The last group discusses approaches to a better understanding of the use and functions of coins.
