This volume of essays approaches the issues involved in the study of ancient economies in terms of their active components - the producers, the organisers, and the transporters. By taking a closer look at how these elements interacted, the contributors have reconstituted the elements of economic behaviour in the ancient world, to show how institutional mechanisms (money supply; the encouragement of city foundations; markets; royal palaces) created frameworks within which goods (oil and wine, cereals, perfumes, ceramics) and services were exchanged. Each chapter engages with the theoretical and material aspects of one of these topics in an original way. The result is an up-to-date approach to ancient economies, which attempts to bridge the gap between the micro scale of small independent communities and the macro scale of territorial powers.
