Byzantine Silver Stamps
Erica Cruikshank Dodd

The volume is divided into three parts: Part I presents a classification and analysis of the stamps and explains the method of dating. Part II explores the type of organization that applied them, and takes up the question of provenance. Following this is an excursus by J. P. C. Kent on the comes sacrarum largitionum. Finally, there is a descriptive catalogue of 103 pieces of silver dating to the period 400–700.
