Roman Coins and their Values, Volume IV: The Tetrarchies and the Rise of the House of
Constantine; The Collapse of Paganism and the Triumph of Christianity,
Diocletian to Constantine I, AD 284-337. by Sear, D.R.
Hardback with dust jacket, 552 pages, black & white illustrations
This fourth volume contains a comprehensive listing of the Roman coinage of the
period AD 284-337 together with background information on the history of each
reign and the principal characteristic of its coinage. The catalogue is
organised primarily by ruler with the issues then subdivided by denomination
and by reverse legend and type.
This arrangement combines the alphabetical ease of reference of Cohen's work with
the scholarship of RIC and other modern studies which are based on
classification by mint. Contains clear black and white photographs and up to
date values for VF and EF coins, in both UK sterling and US dollars. An eagerly
anticipated addition to the series, and a valuable reference for any collector
of this period.
