Roman History and Coinage, 44 BC-AD 69
Fifty Points of Relation From Julius Caesar to VespasianBook - 1987
The period from Julius Caesar to Vespasian has been richly documented by the ancient historians Tacitus, Suetonius, Dio Cassius, and Velleius. While the historians generally recorded their personal views of the events that unfolded in this period , the highly detailed, profuse Roman coinage of the time presents a governmental view. This book compares the two media of historical record in relation to fifty events, common to both, for which the ancient historians are cited in full and the relevant coins are illustrated and discussed.
