La monetazione bizantina in Italia (VI-XI secolo): aggiornamento bibliografico, temi in discussione e prospettive di ricerca
MetadataShow full item record
The Byzantine coinage in Italy (6th-11th centuries) is being investigated on several research fields. The most well attended concerns the byzantine coin finds in archaeological contexts, but many of them are still unpublished and, above all, many are scattered, especially if they are found in crucial areas such as those that remained under Byzantine control for the longest time. Mint emissions are now being addressed through both quantitative studies (sequences of dies) and qualitative studies (analysis of alloy, especially concerning gold), opening up to interdisciplinary approaches. An essential goal will be the integration of numismatic data and their quantity with other research fields (economic history, archaeology, historical demography), in order to link the currency to its primary function.
