The Byzantine Empire

Some date the beginnings of the Byzantine Empire at 476 A.D. after the Roman Emperor Romulus Augustulus. After the Ottoman Turks conquered Constantinople in 1453 A.D. the Roman Empire completely fell. The terms Byzantine Empire (a historiographical term used since the 19th century) and Eastern Roman Empire are expressions used to describe the Roman Empire of the Middle Ages. The “M” on the reverse of the bronze coins represents the denomination 40 nummi. (M=40, K=20, I=10, E=5).
