Later travels by Ciriaco( Book )

8 editions published in 2003 in English and Latin and held by 396 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Cyriac of Ancona (Ciriaco de'Pizzecolli, 1391-1452), a merchant and diplomat as well as a scholar, was among the first to study the physical remains of the ancient world in person and for that reason is sometimes regarded as the father of classical archaeology. His travel diaries and letters are filled with descriptions of classical sites, drawings of buildings and statues, and copies of hundreds of Latin and Greek inscriptions. Cyriac came to see it as his calling to record the current state of the remains of antiquity and to lobby with local authorities for their preservation, recognizing that archaeological evidence was an irreplaceable complement to the written record." "This volume presents letters and diaries from 1443 to 1449, the period of his final voyages, which took him from Italy to the eastern shore of the Adriatic, the Greek mainland, the Aegean islands, Anatolia and Thrace, Mount Athos, Constantinople, the Cyclades, and Crete. Cyriac's accounts of his travels, with their commentary reflecting his wide-ranging antiquarian, political, religious, and commercial interests, provide a fascinating record of the encounter of the Renaissance world with the legacy of classical antiquity. The Latin texts assembled for this edition have been newly edited and most of them appear here for the first time in English. The edition is enhanced with reproductions of Cyriac's sketches and a map of his travels."--Jacket

7 editions published in 2015 in English and Latin and held by 207 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Cyriac of Ancona (1391-1452) was among the first to study the physical remains of the ancient world in person and for that reason is sometimes regarded as the father of classical archaeology. This volume contains a life of Cyriac to the year 1435 by his friend Francesco Scalamonti, which relies on Cyriac's own records, along with several letters to and from Cyriac, and other texts illustrating his early life. These include Cyriac's letter-treatise in praise of Julius Caesar, countering the attacks on the founder of the Roman Empire made by Renaissance republicans. A number of the texts included have been freshly edited and translated for the first time in this volume."--

Arab-Byzantine coins : an introduction, with a catalogue of the Dumbarton Oaks collection by Clive Foss( Book )

13 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 129 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This illustrated book presents a concise history of the development of the coinage of the early Arab caliphate in the seventh century, tracing its transition, from coins that closely resembled Byzantine issues with imperial images, to purely aniconic specimens with inscriptions in Arabic. This so-called Arab-Byzantine series sheds light on a pivotal period in the history of Syria, Palestine, and Egypt, as formerly Byzantine provinces were slowly Arabicized and Islamicized following the Arab conquests of the 630s and 640s. The historical introduction, which includes descriptions of all the basic types, is followed by a catalogue of the collection of Arab-Byzantine coins at Dumbarton Oaks, published here for the first time."--Jacket
