This provides a complete type catalogue of the entire Byzantine coinage, spanning almost a thousand years, from the fall of the Roman Empire in the West in the late 5th century AD to the conquest of Constantinople by the Turks in the mid-15th century. It provides more information in a concise form than any other single-volume work on the coinage of the Christian Empire in the East. The 1987 edition contains a thorough revision of the post-1204 section of the catalogue undertaken by Simon Bendall, the noted specialist in late Byzantine coinage; and a valuable appendix on modern forgeries contributed by Michael O'Hara, who has done considerable research on this important topic.

From the publisher:

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. The Introduction discusses the types, mints, denominations, dates and inscriptions found on Byzantine coins and includes seven maps and a table of monograms. This is an invaluable guide to the whole of the Byzantine series and is already a standard reference work.
