Byzantine coin legends
« on: June 11, 2021, 07:48:42 pm »
I am announcing my website on Byzantine coin legends:
http://augustuscoins.com/ed/Byz/legends.html

It is possible to collect Byzantine coins by emperor and type without knowing what their legends say. The site is intended to enable collectors to understand and translate the legends.

It has sections on numerals/numbers, the Greek alphabet, abbreviations and words, emperor's names, mints, monograms, and many examples in order of Sear number.

I intend the page to be easy to navigate. There are very many internal links and most legends are linked to images of coins with those legends. It is primarily aimed at copper coins. Unusual legends on rare gold and silver coins have been omitted.

This is the first announced version of the web site. Web sites are easy to correct and supplement. If you have suggestions for corrections or supplements, please contact me at the email address on the site. Again, the URL is:

http://augustuscoins.com/ed/Byz/legends.html

Great job, I was able to follow along, despite not having any experience or collecting interest in coins of this period.  You made it easy to grasp.
