Byzantine coins

Many types of coins were struck during the Byzantine Empire, which lasted nearly a thousand years (395-1453). They included solidus, nomismas, hyperpyrons, miliaresons and hystamenons…The Byzantine monetary system was as prolific as it is interesting.

The two metals used most frequently for Byzantine coins were bronze and gold. Silver coins were also struck, but they were much less common. The Byzantine Empire was Catholic and many representations of Christ appeared on the coins, except in the 8th and 9th centuries during the "iconoclastic period"Crowned heads appeared much more consistently on the reverse of the coins. There were portrayed face on rather than in profile, as they had been during the Roman Empire.

You can admire Byzantine coins on Delcampe.

Vinyl records
A box set of Beatles 45 rpm records
We wrote about the 30th anniversary of the CD in a previous newsletter. Did you know that many vinyl records are also available on the marketplace?

Vinyl records are also called "long-playing records". The first one was made in 1887. At the time they first started spinning, records were only available in 78 rpm format... just five minutes of music!

Now nearly exclusively available in 33 and 45 rpm, these jazz, blues, world and electronic "platters" are still a delight to the ears of nostalgic audiophiles. Are you searching for musical authenticity or just want a to build a discography with real "cachet"? Vinyl records may be the solution!

An Elvis Presley LP

A box set of 11 Pink Floyd records

A Bill Haley & His Comets LP
Give your ears a treat with a few examples of this format perfected in 1950s which still has many imitators in the music world!
