There is a new publication on Early Byzantine Copper Coins that I just came across online.  It is an excellent new resource and the entire book can be downloaded in PDF format at - www.byzantine-ae.info. You can contact the author via a contact form at the bottom of the home page (he would like to hear from visitors).

From the website...

EARLY BYZANTINE COPPER COINS
CATALOGUE OF AN ENGLISH COLLECTION

This site aims to inform collectors and students of Byzantine base metal coins issued in the period between the monetary reform of Anastasius I (491-518) and that of Alexius I Comnenus (1081-1118).

The collection described was formed between 1982 and 2015 and is ongoing in certain specific areas.

“Early Byzantine Copper Coins” will be published in book form later in 2016. The first printing (of 100) comprises presentation copies only.

Contents include the following:

The Foreword(s) describe the circumstances of the formation of the collection and the fascination of this series.  There is a lengthy Introduction to the catalogue itself which includes some observations on collecting and studying Byzantine copper, a guide to understanding the catalogue entries, and a short bibliography.

There are 38 chapters which, in a largely conventional way, attribute the coins either by reign (there are two chapters each on the coinage of Justinian I and that of Maurice, and three on that of Heraclius) or by issuing authority. Much of the latter is necessarily speculative, encompassing military issues and emergency and necessity issues from the attempted recovery of parts of Western Europe under Justinian I and his immediate successors, the 20 year conflict with Persia (610-630), and the conquest of large parts of the Eastern Empire by the Arabs.

Two short chapters describe coins in the collection struck by the Germanic Kingdoms and by the Umayyad rulers of Bilad al-Sham and North Africa.

Chapters 39 to 42 inclusive incorporate a number of both published and unpublished papers.

Hello.
Steve updated the Early Byzantine Copper Coins (EBCC) catalog in 2019. It now contains about 500 coins that were not included in the previous catalog.
The files can be found at the same internet address as before.
