BIO

The authors are primarily sigillographers, but also historians, archaeologists and numismatists.

 

Summary

This volume contains primarily papers of the 11th International Symposium of Byzantine Sigillography held in Istanbul (May 2014) and of the last Congress of Byzantine Studies in Belgrade (August 2016). There are papers about the seals as historical source and archaeological finding presenting their role in the Byzantine prosopography, administration, historical geography and art history.
