Ancient Coin Collecting V, The Romaion/Byzantine Culture
By Wayne G. Sayles
Ancient Coin Collecting V explores the civilized world after the fall of Rome through the coins of the Romaioi, Greek citizens of the Roman East. Their coinage reveals a society with strong religious undercurrents and divergent philosophies, and an empire plagued by political and financial crises. Ancient Coin Collecting V also contrasts the artistic styles of iconoclasm with traditional religious art, and traces the evolution of Christian themes in coins.
