Byzantine Lead Seals

Nicolas Oikonomidès

Dumbarton Oaks Byzantine Collection Publications

Sigilography, Byzantine Studies


This booklet provides a brief survey of Byzantine lead seals: their production, use, iconography, inscriptions, and dating. It is liberally illustrated with examples from the collections of Dumbarton Oaks and the Fogg Museum of Art, and is a masterly introduction to the discipline of sigillography and a little-known collection of artifacts.
