The Byzantine Empire lasted for almost a thousand years after the fall of the Roman Empire in the West. The period covered by this catalogue is from the reign of Anastasius I (491-518) until the capture of Constantinople by the Turks in 1453. This new edition incorporates much of the research carried out since its first publication in 1974, including new attributions and new coins that have been recognized. The later Palaeologan period has been revised by Simon Bendall, and Michael Dennis O'Hara has contributed an appendix on the gold forgeries of the "Beirut" and allied schools. Over 2200 coins in gold, silver an bronze are listed, valued and illustrated with more than 600 photographs. The introduction discusses the types, mints, denominations, dates and inscriptions found on Byzantine coins and includes several maps and a table of monograms. David Sear revised the "Roman Coins and their values" series and is the author of "The Emperors of Rome and Byzantium".
