Roman Coins & their values III
Roman Coins & their values III by David R. Sear.
Hard back, 536 pages, illustrated B&W, 14.5cm x 22cm
The third volume of Roman Coins and their Values continues the comprehensive revision and covers in detail the following half Century, a very different period during which the Empire came perilously close to total disintegration under the pressure of foreign invasions.
On the back cover:
The most comprehensive catalogue of the series ever produced for the coin collector, this four-volume work spans almost eight centuries of Roman currency, from its Republican beginnings in the early 3rd century BC down to the barbarian conquest of the western provinces and the commencement of the sole eastern (Byzantine) empire in the late 5th century AD. In addition to detailed descriptions of over 4,000 coins this third volume contains a wealth of biographical and detailed numismatic information as well as notes on the historical significance of many of the individual types. Valuations are provided in a range of grades and in two currencies (British pounds and US dollars) and the work is fully illustrated throughout with high quality photographic images.
