The following has recently been placed on the Spink website:

Roman Coins and their Values - Volume IV

by David R. Sear.

David Sear is currently working on volume IV of his important series “Roman Coins and their Values.” This volume will be entitled “The Tetrarchies and the House of Constantine: The Collapse of Paganism and the Triumph of Christianity, Diocletian to Jovian, AD 284 – 364.” This fourth volume will be followed by the fifth and final part, entitled “The Divided Empire: The Dynasties of Valentinian and Theodosius and their Successors, Valentinian I to Zeno, AD 364 – 491.”

Due to ongoing development of the series, the publication of the fourth volume is now due in late 2009. The fifth volume is planned for 2011.

Does anyone know how or if this volume will address the matter of mints? Will it, perhaps, list types and then note which mints participated in those types?  There may be a clue in the relatively short period being covered but a lot of the book will be filled with gold we never see so there may be no room for this data.  I was sufficiently turned off by the lack of mint information in Volume II that I never even looked at Volume III.  Considering the attention collectors of late Roman pay to their mint marks, it would seem a mistake to put out a book that dodges the matter.
