The volume constitutes the catalog of imperial Roman coins from Augustus to Vitellius preserved at the Civic Museum of Vicenza with a part relating to the history of the medal collection and two essays on coins as a means of propaganda and on the Augustan monetary reform. All over 800 cataloged coins are reproduced on black and white plates and a complete description of each coin is offered. This is the second volume of a series that will see the complete cataloging of the numismatic patrimony of the Civic Museum of Vicenza. The volume is therefore proposed as a very useful tool for scholars but also for the simple curious of the subject.
