That’s unfortunate, RIP Simon.

Did they ever catch the crooks who stole part of his collection?

Sad news.
I had the pleasure of meeting with him a number of times whenever I
visited London, and spent time discussing coins with him when he visited
Sydney. He also attended the local ancient coin club, ASAN, sharing some
of his immense knowledge. A luminary lost. A glass of red will be raised in
his honour. R.I.P.

I never met him, but I greatly appreciate the body of work he had given us.  I am sorry I won't have the chance to meet him.

I met him last in 2015 at the International Numismatic Congress in Taormina. The Italians referred to him as "Professore" and although approaching 80 his mind was as good as ever. We should be thankful for his contribution to Byzantine numismatics in general and Late Byzantine numismatics in particular.

DOC has just launched a new online catalog and of course Simon Bendall was mentioned.

Bendall, Simon (1937–2019)

Scholar, dealer. and collector, the leading expert on late Byzantine coins. Worked at Spink’s between 1965 and 1967, then at Baldwin’s for twenty years, until 1987, when he moved to California a joined the staff of Bruce McNall at Numismatics Fine Arts (NFA) in Los Angeles. On his return to London two years later, he was briefly an independent coin dealer and mostly a consultant for museums, auction houses, and collectors. He rejoined his first employer, Spink’s, between 2006 until his retirement in 2010. He authored more than 200 articles, of which a selection of reprints is being prepared by I. Vecchi and Eleni Lianta. He published the pioneering The Billon Trachea of Michael VIII, 1258–1282 (1974) and The Later Palaeologan Coinage, 1282–1453 (1979), with drawings by Peter Donald; the catalogue of his collection, A Private Collection of Palaeologan Coins (1988); Byzantine Weights: An Introduction (1996), the only introduction currently available; and an updated introduction to the Coinage of the Empire of Trebizond (2015). He wrote the late Byzantine section in David Sear’s Byzantine Coins and Their Values (2nd ed., 1987). His collection was stolen in 1989 when he was working with NFA. He recovered a part, which he sold to the Ashmolean Museum, Oxford, in 1999, and which makes up the core of E. Lianta’s Late Byzantine Coins 1204–1453 in the Ashmolean Museum University of Oxford (2009). His recent acquisitions were also stolen from his London residence in 2018.
