PREFACE It has been 35 years since Bradbury Thurlow and I published a handbook on Italian cast coinage which attempted to summarise the material previously published by Crawford (RRC), Thomsen (ERC), Sydenham (AG) and Haeberlin (1910), a monumental work that after 103 years is still the standard works of reference for this coinage, and itself relied heavily on the pioneering work of Garrucci (1885) for provenances and mint identifications. Since then a multitude of specialist studies has been published dealing with many of the issuing authorities of cast coinage. In 1985 Crawford published Coinage and Money under the Roman Republic (CMRR), an all-embracing introduction to coinages in central Italy at the time of the Roman Republic included an important comparative study of cast issues. This was followed in 1987 by Burnett, Coinage in the Roman World, a very useful introduction to the adoption of coinage by Rome from about 300 BC. Finally, after many years in preparation, Historia Nummorum Italy (HNItaly) was published in 2001, a radical revision and updating the Italian section of the 1911 second version of Barclay Head's Historia Numorum (HN2), with N.K. Rutter as the principal editor and with the collaboration of the most eminent numismatists in the field of Italian numismatics. The aim of this new edition of Italian Cast Coinage (ICC) is to summarise the research on Italy's cast bronze coinage over the last 30 years and add to it the publication of previously unknown types. Although it generally follows the geographical arrangement of HNItaly, the catalogue starts with the coinage of the Roman Republic, the dominant regional power, which maintained a unique unbroken sequence of cast issues from currency bars to the final devaluations and transition to a fiduciary bronze coinage.
