Eastern Medieval

The Barber collection has significant strengths in eastern medieval coinage, including some unique examples of early Arab-Byzantine issues, a large selection of Sasanian coinage, extensive holdings of Turkmen coins and a range of Georgian and Armenian coinage. Elements of this collection are the focus of the 2013-14 numismatic exhibition Faith and Fortune: visualizing the divine on Byzantine and early Islamic coinage.
