Roman Coins and Their Values, 4th Revised Edition

ROMAN COINS AND Their VALUES, 1988 edition, by David Sear

The only one-volume priced guide to the coinage of Republican and Imperial Rome. The original edition of Sear's Roman Coins and Their Values was published by Seaby thirty-six years ago and has been through three revisions (1970, 1974, and 1981). This edition is a reprint of the 1988 Seaby's version. It is an indispensable listing of all major types of gold, silver and bronze, issued over some seven hundred and fifty years by the greatest militaristic state the world has ever known. Over 4,300 coins are included with detailed description and valuations and all major and minor personalities are listed by means of their portrait coins. This fourth revised edition takes notice under the Republic of recent work in the field, especially that of Professor Michael Crawford. In the Imperial period, essential new references that have appeared since the previous edition are all incorporated, for example Dr. J. P. C. Kent's magisterial volume Roman Imperial Coinage VIII, and the late Dr. C. H. V. Sutherland's extensive revision of Roman Imperial Coinage I. The introductory material on denominations, reverse types, mints, mint marks and dating presents a useful background, as do the succinct biographical details that precede the listing of coins issued by emperors and members of the imperial family. Previous editions have been acknowledged by collectors, Roman historians and scholars alike as the most useful single volume reference work in the field. With 12 plates, over 900 photos in the text and a map.

THE HISTORY AND COINAGE OF THE ROMAN IMPERATORS 49-27 BC by David Sear

The brief period covered in this book witnessed the violent transition of the Roman state from a republican constitution, presided over by the Senate, to a full military autocracy under the control of one man, the Emperor Augustus. In reality, the events of these years were merely the culmination of a movement which had been gathering strength over the preceding half-century, since the rise of men such as Marius and Sulla. Caesar had put events into motion by his invasion of Italy and his challenge to Pompey's dominant position in Roman politics. With his assassination on the Ides of March, 44 B.C., Caesar's role was inherited by his youthful great-nephew Octavian who, against seemingly hopeless odds, succeeded in eliminating his rivals for supreme power, notably Mark Antony and his ambitious consort Cleopatra, queen of Egypt. This book traces in detail the unfolding of this drama. Each of its six chapters includes a comprehensive catalogue listing of all the relevant coin types and varieties, each with a full discussion of its significance in the interpretation of the events of the period. Information on the rarity of each type, including estimates of current value, is presented in a separate table. The numerous, though less precisely understood, local coinages of the Imperatorial period are listed in an extensive appendix. Whilst providing a comprehensive numismatic reference work for the age of transition from Republic to Empire the author has also aimed to heighten the historian's awareness of the vital role which may be played by the numismatic evidence in the detailed chronicling of event.
