Product description

This catalogue of Greek coins commences with the earliest electrum coins of Ionia and Lydia and the subsequent coinages of Asia Minor, together with those coins struck under the Persian rule in the pre-Alexandrine age; the second part covers the city coinages of the Greek east from Syria and Phoenicia to Babylonia and Baktria. North Africa, including the important mints of Kyrene and Carthage forms the third part of the catalogue. The final section is devoted to the vast regal issues of the principal kingdoms of the Hellenistic Age ending with Cleopatra V11 whose death brought to an end the Ptolemaic dynasty in Egypt. Historical notes provide background information.
