Covering the Third Century Crisis and Recovery, AD 235-285. It consists of 536 pages which are fully illustrated with new photographs throughout. Valuations are in three grades of preservation. This third volume continues the comprehensive revision of coins of the Roman Empire and their values in detail. The following half century during which the Empire came perilously close to total disintegration under the pressure of foreign invasions and civil war. The economy also collapsed and with it the Imperial coinage, a desperate situation which was only partially alleviated by the currency reform of Aurelian undertaken late in his reign. The complexities of the mint attributions in this chaotic period - lacking as they do in almost every instance the name or initial of the responsible mint - have been dealt with in light of recent scholarship. Also included are detailed listings of the Antoninianus coinage not covered in the "Roman Silver Coins" series. The coinage of the Adoptive emperors and those of the Antonine and Severan dynasties saw unprecedented volume and complexity. As before, current market valuations are expressed in pound sterling and US dollars, in at least two grades of preservation.
