Online Catalogue of Byzantine Coins

Byzantine-Coins-OnlineThe collection of over 12,000 Byzantine coins at Dumbarton Oaks is one of the largest and most comprehensive in the world. The majority of these specimens were catalogued in six print volumes:

  • Catalogue of Byzantine Coins in the Dumbarton Oaks Collection and in the Whittemore Collection, edited by Alfred Bellinger (vol. 1)
  • Catalogue of Byzantine Coins in the Dumbarton Oaks Collection and in the Whittemore Collection, edited Philip Grierson (vols. 2–3, 5)
  • Catalogue of Byzantine Coins in the Dumbarton Oaks Collection and in the Whittemore Collection, edited by Michael Hendy (vol. 4)
  • Catalogue of Late Roman Coins in the Dumbarton Oaks Collection and in the Whittemore Collection, edited by Philip Grierson and Melinda Mays.

With ongoing acquisitions of objects, many of the coins that have entered the collection after the release of the print catalogues have remained unpublished. This online catalogue first presents these more recent specimens, and eventually will provide online access to the full collection.

In addition to Byzantine coins, these acquisitions include specimens issued by Byzantium’s neighbours, including Arab-Byzantine and Persian imitations, Ostrogothic and Vandal coins, and others.
