On the back cover:

As important as the Greek and Roman cultures were in forming the basis for modern society, we are just as fascinated by the mysterious and romantic non classical players on the stage of history. Darius of Persia, Boudicca, warrior queen of the Iceni, Charlemagne, Saladin and countless others left their mark, and their coinage survives as a living testament to their greatness.

Collecting coins from these cultures is a field rich with rewards, and this final volume in the Ancient Coin Collecting series is your guide-book to exploration and success. Spanning 1,500 years of numismatic history, this user friendly guide sheds new light on coinage that has mistakenly been thought of as too complex. Find out for yourself just how understandable and collectable this coinage can be.
