The coinage of Philippopolis. Volume 1: Chronology of Philipopolis Coinage, Dating, Reverse Types, Denominations. Volume 2: Catalogue
Language: English

 

     In the first volume, the chronology of the Philippopolis coinage and all the averse coin types are presented, as well as all varieties of their averse and reverse inscriptions. The dating of these coins, which is an important element of their identification, is also presented in details. The reverse types depicted on the Philippopolis coins, as well as all their variants, were examined in depth. An important part of the first volume is also the presentation of the denominations issued in this mint. Generally, they are divided into six separate denominations, as the medallions are presented separately. Each nominal is presented using detailed tables with all the available parameters of the specimens used. At the end of each denomination, the average coin parameters of each emperor or member of his family, whose images are depicted on coins of that denomination, are presented. There are graphs added, showing a graphical representation of the maximum, the average and the minimum coin weight of the respective denomination, which enables the graphical tracing of the changes at the different emperors. There are also graphs giving the maximum, the average and the minimum coin diameter of each denomination where the changes of this parameter can be traced over time and with each emperor. There are inevitably such that lack some of their parameters: size, weight or axis. All the parameters available have been used when compiling these tables, therefore a certain discrepancy may occur between the number of coins with a given diameter and of those with a given weight for each denomination. However, this method makes it possible for more information to be used for each parameter of the corresponding denomination, which makes the average parameter much more accurate and minimizes its interpolation.

    In the second volume, the systematized catalog with the coin images is presented. For the creation of this catalog have been used  over 8000 coins from the Philippopolis mint. Due to the large contents of all available specimens, the catalog has been optimized and an optimal number of coins is presented so that absolutely all the subspecies and varieties specified in this study can be presented.
