Format: Hardcover
This is the standard reference book for collecting ancient
Roman silver coins. Although it was first published many
years ago, it is still THE standard work on the subject. No
collector of Roman silver should be without it. Always buy
the book first, then the coin.

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Jeremy Bostwick on July 15, 2006
Format: Hardcover
This book allows for the quick and accurate attribution of Republican and Imperatorial coinage, also referred to as Family and Consular coinage. The illustrations present all major designs and easy-to-follow descriptions aid in identification. Depending on the edition, the values can be somewhat out-of-date and are figured in Pounds Sterling, but a rough conversion can always be made and the differences in values reflect the rarity and desirability of each coin. Anecdotal information about the moneyers is usually provided as well, giving insight into the symbolism behind these coins. This book is still the most user-friendly, for both dealers and collectors, among the works written on Roman Republican and Imperatorial silver coinage.
