THE NEW STANDARD WORK ON ROMAN QUINARII
Roman Quinarii from the Republic to Diocletian and the Tetrarchy
By Cathy E. King
This exhaustive study of the enigmatic silver half-denarius denomination is the work of Dr. Cathy King who, for more than three decades, worked in the Heberden Coin Room in the Ashmolean Museum, Oxford. The text is divided into three sections: the Republic to Domitian; the second century down to Commodus; and the third century from AD 193 to Diocletian's coinage reform in the 290s. Detailed analysis of the sequence of issues, mint attribution, dating, and circulation all form part of the discussion and are supported by
tables, graphs, and drawings. Two bibliographies are included, one general, the other listing books and articles on specific finds. This book is essential reading for anyone interested in this diminutive but fascinating Roman denomination and it will remain the standard work of reference for many years to come. A vital addition to any comprehensive numismatic library.
460 pages, 54 plates, including 17 enlargements. Case-bound in cloth, laminated jacket.
Price $125.00 plus $12.00 postage & handling (domestic orders) or $25.00 (abroad).
