BeschreibungAncient Near Eastern hoards of randomly shaped silver, generically called Hacksilber, have come increasingly to be interpreted as hoards of pre-coinage currency. These papers explore the important question of how roughly hacked material gradually evolved into pre-weighed and stamped coinage; the foundation of all modern monetary systems.
