“The publication…will certainly foster further examination of Early Byzantine silver as an economic entity, an expression of faith and piety, and an artistic medium of shining beauty.” American Journal of Archaeology

“Six papers describe and discuss the Sion treasure for the first time, while the others examine more general questions regarding church silver in Syria, the formation and significance of cult treasures (both pagan and Christian), and the state control of silver in both Byzantine and Sasanian empires…This book is highly recommended.” Burlington Magazine
