Numismatics Roman Coins and Their ValuesRoman Coins and Their Values, Volume 2
Millennium Edition (in five volumes)
by David R. Sear
Volume II: Adoptive Emperors to Severans

The second volume of the fully revised and expanded general catalogue of Roman coins extends coverage of the Imperial series from the accession of Nerva (first of the Adoptive Emperors) in AD 96 down to the violent overthrow of the Severan Dynasty fourteen decades later. The introductory articles are again included in this volume and, as in the case of Volume I, the Imperial biographies have been entirely rewritten and enlarged. There has been a major expansion of the catalogue listings which is especially noticeable for gold aureus types and the three major base metal denominations - sestertius, dupondius and as. Once again, great emphasis has been placed on the place of mintage and precise date of issue of each catalogue entry, making this book a far more valuable source of information than previous editions (or any other general work on the subject). The vast 2nd century coinage of Roman Egypt, struck at Alexandria, is also covered comprehensively in this volume, in continuation of the format established in Volume I. The number and quality of the illustrations incorporated in the text has been dramatically increased to over 1,200 out of a total listing of more than 5,000 types.

Copies of all five volumes are now available for ordering.

Price $110.00 plus $13.00 postage & handling (domestic orders) or $25.00 (abroad).
