2 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Peter the K on October 16, 2004
Format: Hardcover
The book does as it says: it teaches you to read and date Roman Imperial coins. Features include an explanation of denominations and inscriptions, a table of names on coins relating to names in history books, common reverse figures, mint marks and a list of all emperors with a paragraph on their life and a picture of one of their coins. 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.

This book by Zander H. Klawans, published in 1953, is perhaps the best resource on doing exactly what its title says. It is short, and every word and illustration is clear and to the point. It summarizes the information in clear tables, thumbnail biographies, and descriptions. I don't think that I am exaggerating when I say that every collector of Roman coins should have this book, although, due to the fact that it is out of print, this may not be possible.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This little book is required for the amateur Roman collector, especially for those who like to purchase uncleared or in attributed coinage.
