Byzantine Coins and their Values
By David R. Sear

An invaluable guide to the whole of the Byzantine series and already a standard reference work, this book contains more information than any other single volume on the Byzantine series. It covers the period from Anastasius I (491 - 815) until the capture of Constantinople by the Turks in 1453. An introduction discusses the types, mints, denominations, dates and inscriptions. Includes seven maps and a table of monograms. The later Palaeologan period has been completely revised by Simon Bendall and Michael O'Hara has contributed a detailed appendix on gold forgeries. Over two and a quarter thousand coins in gold, silver and bronze are listed, valued and illustrated with more than six hundred photographs giving a virtual type catalogue of the Byzantine series.
