Lower Moesia and Thrace in the Roman Imperial System (AD 193217/218)
Author: Dilyana Boteva. Language: Bulgarian with a summary in English


     The book offers a thorough study of all available sources on the development of Lower Moesia and Thracia in the Roman Imperial system under the Early Severi (A.D. 193217/218). The chronology of the respective legati Augusti is discussed and some unknown features of the Imperial development are argued. The research method is based on a historical approach towards the provincial coinage combined with the evidence of the synchronous epigraphic material and ancient authors.

     Under scrutiny are the Lower Moesian and Thracian mints with already published corpora of the issues they struck. The results are presented in a chronological table at the end of analysis of each mint and in two tabulae synchronae, for Lower Moesia and Thrace respectively.
