Abstract

Reviews w h y the late R o m a n and Byzantine pattern of coin use is not found in the Western successor kingdoms. Especially through his involvement with the authoritative Dumbarton Oaks coin catalogues, Hendy has also continued with straightforward numismatic research, as illustrated by papers IX-XII. O f these, no. X I on the Gornoslav hoard is a particularly elegant example of the conclusions that can, in favourable circumstances, be drawn from a seemingly dry list of coin types. It is in small-scale arguments of this sort as well as in the broad sweep of his theoretical discussions that Hendy bridges the 'yawning gap' that in his view exists between numismatists and historians and demonstrates that the one should not operate without the other. It is as usual useful to have a large proportion of a scholar's scattered but cohesive papers collected within one set of covers. In this case this is made the more so by the inclusion of extensive up-datings. Elizabeth M .
