The Seleukid empire, the principal successor-state of the empire of Alexander the Great, endured for over 200 years and stretched, at its peak, from the Mediterranean to the borders of India. This wide-ranging study of the economy of the empire shows how the rulers exploited their lands and subjects, undertook the building of cities, introduced coinage, financed their armies and administration and managed their finances. Adopting a highly-original numerical approach and drawing on different types of evidence, the book presents a model of the workings of an ancient state.
