Piecing up together the data gathered from numismatics, history and archaeology, this book attempts to frame the phenomenon of coin production in the city of Knossos in a wider scenario. Thus, the numismatic research stricto sensu in combined with the rest of the knowledge at our disposal, offering a comprehensive sketch of the dynamics during which - or, sometimes, because of which - the city of Knossos decided to produce its own coins, ranging from the first beginning, up until the Roman conquest of the island of Crete.
