Reading and dating roman imperial coins


reading and dating roman imperial coins-35

Two tables on dating and a bibliography round out this book.

Not a catalog, not for advanced collectors, fun for anyone else, including non-collectors who have an interest in ancient artifacts.

In setting out to write this article, I have the modest goal of helping new collectors of Roman Imperial coins to interpret the inscriptions on their coins.

I must state at the outset that there will be nothing new here, I travel the well marked path of the great numismatists who have gone before me. Reading and Dating Roman Imperial Coins by Zander Klawans has been the starting point for more Roman collectors than perhaps any other book of the last half century and the fact that it is still in print is a testament to it's value.

A handy pocket reference for use in attributing coins.
