Roman History from Coins, by Michael Grant, is a small book with a neat theme. In 92 pages and 32 page plates he discusses coins that can be connected to history. Many authors have questioned his (over)emphasis on Roman anniversaries, but for those of us that like to see the relationship between coins and history, this is a good place to start. A teacher on a low budget in England, he tells many fascinating stories about collecting. It is very well-illustrated by hundreds of photos of (mostly low grade) coins he bought or traded for at coin shows. Unlike any other coin book, most of the coins are identified not only by emperor and type, but also by when, and for how much, he bought them, for example "2 pounds, 1979". I read it six times in the first two years I owned it, and reread the whole thing with great pleasure recently. If you collect only high grade coins, you will still love his style and stories.

Reading ancient roman coins. by Michael S. Swoveland. In setting out to write this article, I have the modest goal of helping new collectors of Roman Imperial coins to interpret the inscriptions on their coins. Reading and Dating Roman Imperial Coins by Zander Klawans has been the starting point for more Roman collectors than perhaps any other book of the last half century and the fact that it is still in print is a testament to it's value. Many new collectors and even advanced students of Latin shy away from attempting to decipher the seemingly cryptic inscriptions found on most Roman coins. The reason for this initial apprehension is that the ancient Romans were excessive abbreviators and that the legends were run together without stops or breaks.

True, this Gospel is generally regarded as having been authored during the reign of Domitian, when the coinage was indistinguishable from that of a half century before, but this is too simplistic a solution as it sidesteps the metaphor with an unnecessarily restrictive interpretation - to say nothing of the reliability of the oral hand-me-downs that recorded the incident in question prior.
