The collection of Late Byzantine coins in the Ashmolean Museum, Oxford, is one of the most important and representative collections of coinage from the period between the sack of Constantinople by the Fourth Crusade in 1204, the Byzantine recovery of the city in 1261, and the final capture of Constantinople by the Ottoman Turks in 1453. This collection is here presented for the first time in a modern catalogue which will enable the user to identify, classify and understand Late Byzantine coins, in accordance with our present state of knowledge. Written by an expert in the field, it provides an indispensable point of reference for students, curators, dealers and collectors as well as a ready source of information for archaeologists, historians and others with a more general interest in late byzantine numismatics.
