Economic, Material, and Social Networks in Antiquity: Aeolian Alexanders
uses social network analysis
and historical geographic information systems to analyze the understudied region of Hellenistic Aeolis in
western Turkey. The focus of this investigation is a reimagining of a die study investigating Aeolian coinage into
a digital publication that illustrates economic and social networks in geographic space.
Moving beyond a traditional print medium, this project uses new software and investigative methodologies to
examine connections between individual coins, engravers, mints, and their larger role in the
Mediterranean world after the death of Alexander the Great.
