1. Read the following passage and answer the questions in your own words:
Coin were first issued is east and west in the eight century B.C. and since then their use spread over the whole civilized world. Unlike many objects in everyday use, they have always been highly prized by their owners, and were, therefore, frequently hoarded. As is still the custom in the east, it was used to bury teasure for safety, with the result that the contents of such ancient and medieval saving banks are frequently turned up by the spade today. Coins are themselves the most imperishable of antiquities. The result is that they still exist in vast numbers of forgotten generations out of all proposition to other remains of the culture with which they were contemporary. The study of coins may, therefore, be expected to yield a considerable amount of information about the past, although we must be careful not to exaggerate their importance. Coins give us some idea of the wealth and importance of ancient states and cities. A study of the find-spots of coins gives an idea of their circulation in ancient times and it is sometimes possible to take deductions about the extent of the domains of a particular state from this; chronological analysis of findings, by reasoning from known dates to pieces of which the dates are hitherto unknown, has often given valuable results. The arguments from find-shot has to be used with care, as commercial reasons frequently explain the finding of coins far from their original mints. Thus, the frequent finds of Roman gold of the early empire in India do not show that the Romans ruled there, but corroborate Pliny’s reference to the tremendous drain on Rome to pay for Roman levouries.
