Catalogue of Byzantine Seals at Dumbarton Oaks and in the Fogg Museum of Art: Italy, North of the Balkans, North of the Black Sea
The sections begin with a short essay on the region's location and history. Each seal is illustrated and is accompanied-where appropriate-by full commentary regarding the specimen's date, biographical information on its owner, peculiarities of orthography, and special features of iconography. These small seals are a large contribution to historical geography, the evolution of the Byzantine provincial administration, prosopography, development in the Greek language, and decorative vogues.
