Catalogue of Late Roman Coins in the Dumbarton Oaks Collection and in the Whittemore Collection, 1: From Arcadius and Honorius to the Accession of Anastasius

Philip Grierson, Melinda Mays

ISBN 9780884021933

Publication date: 01/01/1992

This is the first fully illustrated catalogue of a major collection of late Roman and early Byzantine imperial coins. It follows the general layout of the Byzantine volumes in the Dumbarton Oaks series, with a substantial introduction dealing with the history of the coinage, including iconography, mints, and the monetary system.

Praise

  • This new volume, though described as a catalogue, might more properly be approached as the story of Late Roman coinage told through the magnificent collection at Dumbarton Oaks. Novice and scholar, historian and numismatist, will all find satisfying fare. The authors have fulfilled their aims admirably, and—equally important—they have done so at a price that makes their work accessible to virtually every library and scholar of the period.
