Roman Bronze Coins: From Paganism to Christianity 294-364 A.D.

(Ross & Perry: Washington, DC, 2003).


During the seventy-year period covered by Roman Bronze Coins, Christian symbols on coins increased as that religion gradually replaced the traditional Roman gods as the official state religion. The book begins with the Emperor Diocletianís empire-wide coin reform and his failure to establish price controls. It transitions into the fourth century where his successful reorganization of the Roman government paved the way for Constantine the Greatís thirty year rule that ushered the Christian transformation.

This convenient, one-volume reference uses the humble bronze coin to trace that story and provide coin collectors several different ways to identify and catalog the coin.
