Anyone who finds Roman coins, collects or studies them, will find this book an invaluable guide.
Identifying Roman Coins is an easy to use, visual recognition guide to help identify Roman coins.
The authors' chronological presentation identifies major reverse types from the first to the late fourth century AD. Dr. Reece's text outlines interesting aspects of the coinage, the issues, mints, points to look out for, etc, together with a select bibliography which acts as guidance for those who wish to look deeper at the subject.
All the illustrations, which are line drawings for greater clarity and ease of recognition, have explanatory notes.
