The Seleukid Royal Economy: The Finances and Financial Administration of the Seleukid Empireby G. G. Aperghis
Pub. Date: 11/15/2004
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
The Seleukid empire, the principal successor-state of the empire of Alexander the Great, endured for over 200 years and extended from the Mediterranean Sea to the borders of India at its peak. This wide-ranging study of the economy of the empire reveals how the rulers exploited their lands and subjects, undertook the building of cities, introduced coinage, financed their armies and administration and managed their finances.
