Walker, R, Reading Medieval European Coins. New second edition of the only inexpensive book on understanding the unusual world of medieval European coin inscriptions. The author takes the reader through all the aspects of reading medieval European coins. He explains the styles of medieval letters, together with the idiosyncrasies of minting. Chapters on abbreviations, monograms and word separators are of great importance, along with medieval numismatic grammar. Latin, the primary numismatic language, is an important section. Another provides a brief acquaintance with other languages such as Slavonic, Arabic, Greek, Hebrew and other vernacular languages. The helpful appendices include (a) an illustrative list of personal names, (b) titles on medieval European coins, (c) useful words found on medieval coins, (d) sample religious legends on medieval coins, and (e) an expanded and updated bibliography. 44 pp., ill.
