Literature about Viminacium and/or Dacia
Pick, Behrendt - Die antiken Münzen Nord-Griechenlands, band I. (Berlin, 1898).
This book is free downloadable on the internet. It contains a chapter on the coins of Dacia and Viminacium. For its time it is very informative and contains a catalog of coins which were then known to exist. Recommended!
Moushmov, Nikola - Ancient Coins of the Balkan Peninsula and the Coins of the Bulgarian Monarchs (Античните монети на Балкански полуостров и монетите на българските царе). (Bulgaria 1912).
This book is translated and converted for internet publication and is available for reading here. It is a simple summary of coin types unfortunately with little pictures.
Orlov, Georgije - Viminacijum, Emisije lokalnog novca. Univerzitet, Beogradski grafički zavod. (Beograd, 1970).
This book does not have an easy accessibility because it is written in Serbian. It contains some photo's but the coins that were photographed are in bad quality of conservation. If you can obtain a copy you can scan it with OCR and translate it with google.
Martin, Ferenc - Kolonial Prägungen aus Moesia Superior und Dacia. (Budapest-Bonn, 1992).
This book is often quoted and referred to. It has a nice introduction on the coins of Viminacium followed by a catalog with many varieties. Martin was in the fortunate position to study some large Viminacium coin collections. The catalog part unfortunately does not contain photographs but drawings of the coins. In the back of the book however are 8 plates with photographs but not of all varieties mentioned in the catalog part. Unfortunately the book is out of print and only available antiquary. It is however recommended and i'am gratefull that a copy was offered to me.
Varbanov, Ivan - Greek imperial coins, Vol. 1 Dacia, Moesia Superior, Moesia Inferior. (Bourgas, 2005).
Catalogue in the style of the books of David Sear. For Dacia and Viminacium I find this book a disappointment. There is no background information whatsoever. The catalogue part has a very confusing set up and has some errors. If you buy the book only for Viminacium and/or Dacia then I don't recommend it.
Koczev, Aleksandar Ing. - Catalog provincial coins of Viminacium the capital of the Roman province of Upper Moesia (2008).
Simple and cheap catalogue on the coins of Viminacium. The few photographs are not great quality. The book contains mostly simple line drawings. It is however very usable if you only want to know what was struck in Viminacium in whose name and what text varieties exist. More recommended than Varbanov.
