Base-Metal Coinage Circulation in Byzantine Beirut 491–641 CE

Abstract : This paper addresses the circulation of Early Byzantine coins produced between 491 and 641 ce and found in 41 archaeological excavations in Beirut Central District, covering significant parts of the Byzantine city of Berytus. The purpose of the study is to identify the pattern of coin supply throughout this period with a re-examination of previous assumptions. A comparative analysis is established with numismatic data found in neighboring sites in order to highlight common and distinctive patterns of supply at the regional level.
