Aizanoi ancient site; One of the first stock markets of the world

Aizanoi Zeus temple

Aizanoi was a special site for economical history because it was the place we saw the early economical struggle against inflation in the world. Before this point, let’s listen to Aizanoi’s story;

We are going back to Roman period. It was a glorious ancient site with a Zeus temple and a theater complex. Imperial palace had a strict control in the market. Inflation started to go up so imperial palace decided to control the markets with fixed prices. They published those prices of goods on Macellum’s official inscriptions (We have them at present). By this method, the system was working as a stock market. This stock market was ruled by Emperor Diocletian ( 301 AD).

Aizanoi ancient site is located in Kütahya county of Turkey. It is in the list of UNESCO World Heritage list.
