In my search

For Byzantine silverware, I found this:

Ecclesiastical Silver Plate in Sixth-Century Byzantium

Dry, no? Well, it's full of all kinds of fun details about the silver trade in early Byzantium, and it's good for culture, if nothing else. There's a bit of a preview online, and then you can buy or ILL the whole book.

Can anybody locate a catalog for this exhibit? They apparently have common household items (*ahem* silverware) on display. It could be useful.

Gotta go. More later.
