Roman coins

       At the moment we are working on the most comprehensive catalogue of Roman coins ever made. It will include all the published coins, described in the most authoritative world editions, as well as many unpublished monetary types found in our area.  The catalogue will consist of several tomes and will cover the period of the first monetary specimens from the Roman Republic to the period of emperor Anastasii I (495 A.D.).
       The coins of every emperor will be divided in three groups:gold, silver and coins of base metal. In each group the coins will be described by nominal in descending order. For example, for the early emperors the coins of base metal will be described in the following order:medallion, sestertius, dupondius, ass, semis, tremis.  In the period of late emperors, many varieties appear on the reverse of the coins and they are determined by the advent of an inscription in the exergue as a sign of the mint. Also,  symbols and letters appear on different parts on the field of the coin.  We created a new formula, by which the collector can easily determine every single variety of those types of coins and find out the degree of their rareness.
       The description of every coin in the catalogue includes: the year of minting, averse legend, averse coin type, mint, reverse legend, reverse coin type, source of information, degree of rareness and price.
      The degree of rareness just like in the “Greek Imperial Coins” varies from R1 to R10 and is compatible with the degree of rareness used in the biggest and authorative edition “Roman Imperial Coins”. Every coin type will be shown with picture.
        The first volume is due to be published in 2009.

We have collected thousands of coins accompanied with picture material, which will be edited and published with the help of Stavri Topalov, one of the best experts in the area of the Thracian and Greek coinage.
