This book aims at producing an easily usable and visual recognition guide to Roman coins. Their chronological presentation follows and identifies major reverse types from the first to the late fourth centuries AD. Dr Reece's text outlines interesting aspects of the coinage, the issues, mints, points to look for, etc., together with a select bibliography which acts as guidance for those who wish to look deeper into the subject. All the illustrations, line drawings for greater clarity and ease of recognition, have explanatory notes. Anyone who finds Roman coins, either by excavation or by chance, collects and studies them, will find this book an invaluable guide to the series.
