Jutta-Annette Bruhn (1993)


“This concise monograph examines the technology, iconography and context of Late Roman gold coin jewelry…excellent photographs and drawings vividly illustrate the ostentation of these symbols of power and wealth…This exhibition catalogue of fifteen items, which also includes a complete bibliography, extensive footnotes and a useful glossary, is a beautiful and scholarly contribution to the study of ancient jewelry, a Vorbild for its kind, as essential tool for specialists and a sumptuous delight for general readers.” —Revue des archéologues et historiens d'art de Louvain
