This introductory booklet on Byzantine coinage, first published in 1982, has been updated and expanded to include a description of the creation of the coin collection at Dumbarton Oaks. This new edition marks the completion of the five volume series Catalogue of the Byzantine Coins in the Dumbarton Oaks Collection.

This book gets four stars on account of it being overly brief, and still costing $15. Dumbarton Oaks also published 'A Collection of Dated Byzantine Lead Sales (Dumbarton Oaks Other Titles in Byzantine Studies) for the same price, but has the advantage of being almost thrice the length and having better appendices. I was also hoping to learn something more about how coins are typically recovered, as well as something more on the "cup" coins of the Komnenian-era and later. Beyond acknowledging that they exist, Grierson has very little to say on them.
However, this is still a very good introductory volume. The pictures of the coins are reproduced with clarity, and the text is easy to read and very informative. Highly recommended.
