Byzantine silver coins are extremely scarce.  You can go to large shows where there are multiple ancient coin dealers in attendance and you can pick up 50 bronzes for every solidus but similarly, you can pick up 20 solidi for every Byzantine silver coin you might find...........   Scarce, scarce, scarce and high grade to boot
