 SEAR, D.R., Roman Coins and Their Values. Volume 3. The Decline and Fall of Rome and the Triumph of Christianity, A.D. 235-285.

The current revision of this popular work marks a radical departure from the envisaged aims of the previous editions. In this third volume, the number of catalogue entries has been greatly expanded to provide a better understanding of the coinage of this turbulent half-century which saw unprecedented debasement of the imperial money and the decentralization of the minting system within the Roman Empire.

As in earlier volumes in this series, much greater emphasis has been placed on the precise chronology and place of mintage of each type and special attention paid to the important series of billon and bronze coins struck at the Egyptian capital of Alexandria. Valuations (both in British pounds and US dollars) are given in either two or three grades of preservation for each entry.

 Perhaps most importantly for the collector, the number of photographic illustrations in the text has been greatly increased and their quality much improved.

This is hardback edition and a must for collectors of Roman Coins to have in their library
