Their coinage reveals a society with strong religious undercurrents and divergent philosophies, but plagued by political and financial crises."Ancient Coin Collecting V: The Romaion/Byzantine Culture" explores the history and art of a culture that survived for nearly 1,000 years. Through the timeless record of coins you'll learn what happened after the Fall of Rome, witness the sacking of Constantinople by marauding Crusaders, and experience the empire's last days under Constantine XI.
