During the summers from 1958 through 1968 a Harvard–Cornell team of archeologists excavated the site of ancient Sardis, metropolis of Asia Minor and fabled capital of the Lydian Kingdom. Byzantine Coins is the first volume in a series of reports and monographs in which the results of these excavations will be published.
