Abstract

Through the study of a few coins made at the city of Tel Dor, in today’s State of Israel, during Roman imperial time, we will explore questions related to local identities and how they influenced iconographic representations on coins. Therefore, the coin would hold in itself not just monetary value but also identity value, known only by the locals, familiarized with the symbols represented on these coins. With the analysis of the relationship between coins and identities, in this case specifically from Tel Dor, we are able to catch a glimpse of the interactions and perceptions of different people under Roman rule, and how Romans themselves saw and were seen by those people.
