The Byzantine Empire lasted for almost a thousand years after the fall of the Roman Empire in the West. The period covered by this catalogue is from the reign of Anastasius I (491-518) until the capture of Constantinople by the Turks in 1453. When this catalogue was first published in 1974 it was hailed as containing more information in a concise form than any other single volume on the Byzantine series.

This edition incorporates the research of the intervening years, new attributions and new coins that have been recognised. The later Palaeologan period has been completely revised by Simon Bendall and an Appendix has been added covering the gold forgeries of the 'Beirut' and allied schools that have caused collectors some concern. Over 2,500 coins in gold, silver and bronze are listed, valued and illustrated with more than 600 photographs giving a virtual type catalogue of the Byzantine series.

This is an invaluable guide to the whole of the Byzantine series.
