Abstract :
The paper reconsiders some conclusions that have been put forward concerning the silver hoard found at the Median site Nush-i Jan and discusses its implications to Median history and economy in general. It concludes that Median society seems to have been able to adapt to the use of money and to the Near Eastern way of registering accumulated incomes, a fact that points toward a certain complexity of both social and economic structures.
