jlueke Posted November 24, 2005 Report Share Posted November 24, 2005 Monumental Coins by Marvin Tameanko is a wonderful book. The subject is the depiction of buildings, bridges, and other structures on ancient Greek and Roman coins. Each of the thirty-three chapters is illustrated with numerous drawings of the coins under discussion. One hundred of the coins are also supplemented on VIII plates at the end of the book. This is truly a wonderful work, Mr. Tameanko’s passion for the subject definitely shines through. If you are interested in ancient coins, ancient architecture, or history than I recommend this book. It is no longer available form the publisher but can be readily found on the internet for a fraction of the cover price. $10-$20 for a wonderful hardbound book about coins is a deal no one should pass up.
