More than 450 ancient weights and pieces of pre-coinage currency have been cataloged and described by David Hendin, author of the bestselling Guide to Biblical Coins, Not Kosher: Forgeries of Jewish and Biblical Coins, Collecting Coins, and many other books. No collection of ancient weights of this breadth and depth has ever been published in a single volume. It contains more than 100 pages of Hendin’s never-before-published material about weights and pre-coinage currency, based on the examples in his collection. He consolidates a great deal of relevant scholarship, with extensive references, and places it in a context most useful to non-specialists. This book is an essential reference for curators, field archaeologists, collectors, biblical historians, and others who would like to understand the evolution and use of pre-coinage currency and ancient scale weights of the Near East.
