The text presents the numismatic collection, never published before, of the Diocesan Museum of Salerno. The pieces that constitute it, all in copper, range from the Lombard period with the coins of Gisulfo II (1052-1077) and end with the Swabian occupation of the Kingdom of Sicily by Henry VI (1194-1197) and Costanza d ' Altavilla, covering a very large time span. The catalog is preceded by a substantial introduction, in which new considerations on the Salerno mint are proposed.
