The Byzantine Empire encompassed the time period of 330 AD until 1453. The Byzantine Empire evolved from the Greek-speaking Eastern half of the Roman Empire and it continued the Roman monetary system. As time progressed, the coins changed to reflect their periods of currency inflations, prosperities and their ultimate decline.
Byzantine coins display a progression from the pagan Roman world into the Christian civilization of the western world.
