Roman Provincial Coinage VII.2 From Gordian I to Gordian III (AD 238–244) by Jerome Mairat and Marguerite Spoerri Butcher
The latest volume to be published in this highly regarded series.
This volume presents for the first time an authoritative and systematic account of the coins minted in the Roman provinces between AD 238 and 244 (except the province of Asia, previously covered in volume VII.1), and shows how these coins can be regarded as an integral part of the coinage minted under the Roman emperors. The book gives a complete picture of the material, thereby not only meeting the needs of numismatists but also providing an essential reference for historians, archaeologists and other students of the Roman empire.
Catalogues over 25,000 coins minted at 128 cities located throughout the eastern part of the Roman Empire, from Viminacium in Serbia to Singara in Mesopotamia, and from the Bosporan Kingdom in Crimea to Alexandria in Egypt.
The introductory essays and extensive catalogue section are followed by indexes and an illustration of every major issue listed.
