Symbols of Cities and Leagues

This is my very bad snapshot of a slide designed by David Weidgenannt and included in his INC 2022 talk. His paper demonstrated that coins typically attributed to the Arkadian league should be attributed to Megalopolis and that the monogram of ARK seen on the coins is an ethic identifier not that of the league itself. (Can’t wait to read the published version).

This led to my talking more with him about Killen’s work Parasema: Offizielle Symbole griechischer Poleis und Bundesstaaten. (publisher’s link, ANS catalogue link). This blog post is really just a bibliographical reminder to myself to check out the book the next time I’m in the ANS. Seems an invaluable resource for political iconographic work on the Roman Republic.
