This book based on a set of numismatics materials as complete as possible, brings a major contribution to the history of the Northern Phoenicia cities on which, traditionally, sources are scares. From its autonomy by 81/80 B.C. to the foundation of a Roman colony in Berytos/ Beirut in 15 B.C. and to the relations Berytos developed with the colony of Heliopolis/ Baalbek, coinage study has always been closely linked to the context of events those two cities.
