Greek Imperial Coins

SEAR, D R   Greek Imperial Coins and their Values
The Local Coinage of the Roman Empire. London 1982. Reprinted 1997. xxxvi, 636 pages, illustrated throughout with over 1,750 photographs, 10 maps. Valuations. Cloth. This catalogue is unique in providing the collector with the only comprehensive and authoritative guide devoted specifically to the local coinages of the Roman Empire, undoubtedly the most neglected series in the whole of ancient classical numismatics. Greek Imperial coins span more than three centuries from Augustus to Diocletian, and were issued at over six hundred mints from Spain in the west to Mesopotamia in the east. The catalogue is arranged in three sections; first, the coins bearing the heads of emperors and empresses are catalogued in their chronological sequence, reign by reign. This arrangement aids the collector in identification and emphasises the true importance of the local series as a complement to the empire-wide Roman state coinage. Within each reign the issues are placed in their traditional geographical sequence, as are the quasi-autonomous coins (those without imperial names and portraits) which are listed separately in section two. The third section of the catalogue lists contemporary coinages - the products of independent and semi-independent states belonging to the same era as Greek Imperial issues - and, in many instances, completes the listing begun in the two volumes of Greek Coins and their Values. In addition to cataloguing and valuing over 6,000 coins, full information is provided on all aspects of the subjects, types and inscriptions, magistrates' titles, city epithets, dates and eras, denominations and marks of value and a full alphabetical listing of all the mints (with ethnics) engaged in the production of Greek Imperial coins.

Greek Coin Types and their Identification

PLANT R   Greek Coins Types and their Identification
343 pages, illustrated with line drawings. Card covers. First published in 1979. In this book, Richard Plant has taken nearly 3,000 Greek coins, concentrating on types which may not be immediately identifiable from their inscriptions or subjects represented, and has broadly analysed them according to their characteristic types and grouped them accordingly. The book's ease of use will make it an invaluable aid to the identification of Greek coins for everyone from the beginner to the professional.

Historia Numorum., Italy

RUTTER N K   Historia Numorum
Italy. 2001. 240 pages, 48 plates. Casebound. This radically revised and updated version of Historia Numorum has been in preparation since long before Sir Edward Robinson's death in 1976. He has decided to devote the first fascicule to the Greek coinages of Italy, and such scholars as the late Humphrey Sutherland, Colin Kraay, and Martin Price have been associated with the project. Keith Rutter has now published the first of a series of volumes that will eventually complete the task envisaged by Robinson. The next volume to appear will be that covering Sicily. Keith Rutter will be the principal editor of that volume. Highly recommended and invaluable for anyone interested in the series. Written to provide a clear and detailed account of the coinage of the prosperous southern Italy. The book also details the coinages of the cities of Etruria and northeastern Italy. Arranged geographically, the mints within each area are the also listed alphabetically. Included are details of the historical or geographical background and an examination of the metals, weight standards and chronology. At the end of the book is a plate section containing a wide selection of illustrations of the mints discussed, as well as four maps of the area. Historia Numorum is fully indexed for ease of reference; the indexes include reverse types and proper names.

Indo-Greek... Vo I - IX Complete

MITCHINER, M   Indo-Greek and Indo-Scythian Coinage, volumes I - IX
This study commences at the time when Alexander the Great conquered the Persian Empire and extended the Greek world as far as the Punjab. The traditional Persian practice of permitting provincial governors (Satraps) to issue their own coins has produced an interesting series of satrapal coins extending from Egypt and Babylon to the Kabul valley where Alexander's father-in-law Oxyartes struck a few coins while satrap during the 320's BC. The more homogeneous coinage of the succeeding Seleucid Empire came to an end, so far as the Eastern provinces were concerned, when they declared their independence during the 250's BC. The Indo-Greek's rose to prominence as they re-conquered southern provinces whose ownership had passed from Alexander and Seleucos to the Indian King Chandragupta Maurya. Cover Similar to Volume I.

ASHTON R   Studies in Ancient Coinage from Turkey
London 1996. viii, 160; 69 plates, illustrating some 1,600 coins. Casebound. Royal Numismatic Society Special Publication No.29. "The principal purpose of this volume is to make accessible the work of Turkish scholars in the field of ancient numismatics, both by translation of articles already published in Turkish periodicals and by the presentation for the first time of other material in Turkish museums and registered private collections. Several British scholars have also either contributed their own work or collaborated with their Turkish colleagues in joint articles. The book includes reports on seven hoards of Greek and Greek Imperial coins and four hoards of Roman Imperial coins and catalogues six other collections of mostly provenanced coins. In addition there are three other essays including a die-study of the extensive bronze coinage of Gordian III minted at Caesarea in Cappadocia".

Essays in Honour..

JESSOP PRICE M BURNETT A & BLAND R   Essays in Honour of G K Jenkins and R A G Carson
London, 1993. 296 pages, 48 plates. Casebound. A major collection of 30 Essays by leading numismatists marking the 75th birthdays of two past keepers of the Coins and Medals Department at the British Museum. The names of Carson and Jenkins have for many years typified the tradition of classical numismatics at the British Museum and in Great Britain. Both joined the British Museum in 1947. Robert Carson rapidly became established as one of the leading Roman numismatists of the day, actively involved in societies and organisations, particularly the Royal Numismatic Society and the International Numismatic Commission, both of which he was President. Kenneth Jenkins devoted himself to the study of Greek numismatics. The bibliography of his work illustrates the way in which he has been able to revolutionise our understanding of many areas of Greek coinage, in particular that of the western Mediterranean (Sicily & Carthage). His interests extended much further and there is no part of the Greek world in which he has failed to be informative, even remote areas such as Greek India.

The Silver Coinage of Velia

WILLIAMS R T   The Silver Coinage of Velia
London 1992. xii, 152 pages, 47 plates. Casebound. Royal Numismatic Society Special Publication No.25. "In this book Roderic Williams provides for the first time a complete corpus and die-study of all the silver coins struck by the Greek city of Velia in Southern Italy. These coins, many of which were of the highest artistic quality, were issued over a period of some 250 years from shortly after the foundation of the city in the second half of the sixth century BC to the invasion of Pyrrhus in c.275 BC. The bulk of the work consists of a catalogue of specimens, divided into eleven sections. Each section contains introductory text followed by the catalogue. There are more than 600 catalogue entries, each of which contains up to 50 individual pieces. A series of 47 high-quality plates illustrates all the die-combinations. The text sets the coinage in its historical context as well as discussing the style, designs and arrangement of the coins themselves. A full study of the coinage of this important city has never been undertaken before and the book represents a major advance in the field of south Italian numismatics and will be the standard work on the subject for many years; it will also be indispensable for students of the history of the Greek colonies in southern Italy."

Travaux de Numismatique

AMANDRY M & HURTER S   Travaux de Numismatique Grecque offerts & Georges le Rider
In association with Denise Berend. A major collection of studies on Greek coinages, published by Spink in honour of Georges Le Ride. London, 1999. 450 pages, 50 plates. Casebound in cloth. George Le Rider is one of the most eminent historians and numismatists whose writings are multifaceted and encompass a wide range of areas of ancient Greek coinages. Many of his books are standard works: Suse sous les S leucides et les Parthes (1965), Monnaies cr toises (1966), Philippe II (1977), Glnar II. Le tr sor de Meydancikkale (1980), and his most recent work on S leucie du Tigre (1998).

Most of the contributions focus on archaic, classical, and mainly, Hellenistic coinages, whilst two deal with Roman provincial coinages. A final contribution publishes the bibliography of G. Le Rider.

Coin Hoards Volume VIII

WARTENBERG U, JESSOP PRICE M & McGREGOR K A   Coin Hoards Volume VIII, Greek Hoards
London 1994. xii, 114; 87 plates. Casebound. "This, the eighth volume of Coin Hoards, is dedicated solely to hoards of Greek coins. This book includes hoards from all areas around the Mediterranean from the sixth century BC to the second century AD. Thus Coin Hoards VIII, together with the relevant sections in Coin Hoards I-VII, will be an essential supplement to the Inventory of Greek Coins Hoards published in 1973 by Thompson, Morkholm and Krayy. Since the last volume, Coin Hoards VII, published nearly ten years ago, the number of hoards of Greek coins has increased considerably. Not only does this volume list 404 new hoards, but it also updates and often amends information on hoards already published. Overall, the catalogue consists of a total of 604 hoards, with detailed references to find-spot (if known), content, approximate burial date and bibliography. An important aspect of this volume is the inclusion of photgraphs of a large proportion of those coins described, adding greatly to the importance of this volume as a research tool".

Studies in Greek Numismatics

ASHTON R & HURTER S   Studies in Greek Numismatics in memory of Martin Jessop Price
London, 1998. Xvi, 400 pages; 80 plates including a frontispiece portrait. Casebound in cloth. This major new volume, honouring the memory of Martin J. Price who died in 1996 is a milestone in new studies on Greek numismatics. Amongst the contributors are many of today's leading numismatists, and the topics reflect Price's universal knowledge which covered Greek coinage from its inception to the Roman period. Many concentrate around his areas of special interest: the beginnings of coinage, Greek bromze coinage, kings Philip and Alexander of Macedon, Asia Minor prior to Alexander's campaign, and Greek bronze of the Roman period (colonial bronzes). One of Martin Price's credits was the inauguration of the series Coin Hoards, and, fittingly, several of the contributors present coin hoards to his memory. An appreciation by Roger Bland and an Introduction by Georges Le Rider, together with a full Bibliography of Martin Price's published work, by M I Stefanakis complete the volume.

Early Hellenistic Coinage

MORKHOLM O   Early Hellenistic Coinage from the Accession of Alexander to the Peace of Apamea
336-188 BC. 1991. Reprinted 1997. xxii, 274; 45 plates. Casebound. This is the first full study of early Hellenistic coinage to be published. It provides a general history of the coinage of Alexander the Great and his successors, and of the cities of Greece and Asia Minor, over the century and a half 336-188 BC. Dr Morkholm gives special attention to the imitative coinages bearing the names of Philip of Macedon, Alexander and Lysimachus which can now, as a result of the work of the great American numismatist Edward T. Newell and subsequent scholars, be confidently attributed to later periods and to different regions in the Hellenistic world. Dr. Morkholm's original intention was to write a survey of Hellenistic coinage down to the Roman acquisition of Egypt in 30 BC., but he dies with his project only half finished. His survey of early Hellenistic coinage, however, is complete in itself. A short epilogue has been added by Professor Grierson, describing the main features of the coinage after 188 BC. The book is fully annotated, so that the reader can follow the most recent discussion of each theme, and a select bibliography covers theperiod down to 30 B.C. The forty five plates, based mainly on material in the Royal Danish Coin Cabinet and illustrating over 600 coins, include virtually all types struck prior to 188 and a selection of those minted subsequently. Dr Morkholm's detailed descriptions of the coins will provide a standard work of reference for ancient historians, numismatists and collectors.

Chronologie der Didrachmenpragung von Tarent

FISCHER-BOSSERT W   Chronologie der Didrachmenpragung von Tarent
1999. Xviii, 496 pages, map, 84 plates. Text in German, with concordances and cross-references to other important collections. Casebound. This monumental work (the doctoral thesis of the author) represents a thorough study of the silver didrachms (or nomoi) of Tarentum, the most important coinage of Greek Southern Italy from the late sixth to mid-third centuries BC. Fischer-Bossert's work privides the thorough die analyses and detailed chronology that until now has been lacking for the issues of Tarentum from 510 to 280 BC. Hundreds of quality photographs detail every known die combination, and hoard analysis lends weight to the chronology. A highly important work for the student and collector of the coinage of Magna Graeca.

Indo-Scythian Coins and History, volume I, II, III & IV

SENIOR R C   Indo-Scythian Coins and History, volume I, II, III & IV
Three volumes. 2001. Vol. 1. An Analysis of the Coinage. Vi, 226 pages, illustrations throughout. Vol. 2. The Illustrated Catalogue of of Indo-Scythian and Indo-Parthian Coins. Xviii, 244; notes (8), illustrations throughout. Vol. 3. The 'Easy Finder' Catalogue of Types, Monograms and Letters appearing on Indo-Scythian and Indo-Parthian Coins. Iv, 76 (2), (10) pages. Casebound, jackets. Vol. 4. Supliment volume. 590 pages of text in three hardbound volumes, plus supliment volume; illustrated throughout with photographs, drawings, charts and maps. This monumental work in three complete volumes represents over forty years of study by the author researching and collecting the coinage of the Scythian people. The term Scythian applies generically to a whole group of nomadic tribes who sporadically migrated west and south-west into Hindu Kush - now modern Afghanistan - from central Asia. The Scythians were a Federation of Central Asian nomads famous for their archery and horsemanship. Towards the end of the third century BC and again in the first half of the second century BC a series of events took place which caused great numbers of these nomads to migrate south. Eventually they moved into India having taken three different routes and arriving at three different times during the second and first centuries BC. Here they carved out kingdoms at a crucial time in India's history. They utilised the Silk Route via India to a far greater extent than previously and they absorbed the cultures and religions of Greece, Persia and India into their own. Despite the great expansion of Buddhism and monastic writing, almost nothing has survived to relate their story in this time; only their coinage offers some light upon the chronology, geography and occupation of events. The first volume is an account of the history of the Indo-Scythians, analysing their bilingual coinage - in Greek and Karosthi - in the style attributed to the kingdom of Baktria, easternmost of all Greek realms. The second volume compiles the coins known up to this time in a comprehensive catalogue. The third volume provides a summary of this catalogue incorporating clear line drawings taken directly from the coins with tables listing every variety known.

Greek, Roman, and Byzantine Coins

IRELAND, S   Greek, Roman, and Byzantine Coins in the Museum at Amasya
Ancient Amaseia, Turkey. RNS Special Publication No.33. viii, 124 pages, 61 plates. Cloth. The ancient city of Amaseia was one of the major centres of northeast Anatolia. In the Hellenistic period it was capital of the powerful kingdom of Pontus, while under the Roman empire it boasted the title of 'Metropolis and First City' of its province. This volume presents over 4,500 coins held in the museum of the modern city of Amasya, coins ranging in date from the 5th century BC to the 11th century AD. Most are finds from the surrounding region, so that there are rich holdings from the mints of Amaseia, Amisus, Sinope, and Cappadocian Caesarea; but over 50 other mints in Asia Minor are represented, and some coins come from as far afield as Alexandria in Egypt and Arles in Gaul. This volume continues the work of presenting the rich but little known numismatic collections of Turkish provincial museums. Several preliminary studies have been published under the auspices of the Royal Numismatic Society and/or the British Institute of Archaeology at Ankara.

WILLIAMS R T   Silver Coinage of the Phokians
RNS Special Publication no. 7. London 1972. ix, map, 138 pages, 16 plates. Casebound, jacket. Based on a collection of the largest possible body of material, a reconstruction has been attempted of the sequence of the silver issues struck by the Phokians from the establishment of their confederacy at the end of the sixth-century BC. Of the fifth-century coinage there has been distinguished an issue struck while the Phokians were in control of the Delphic shrine during the Second Sacred War. The Phokian coinage of the fourth century in the Third Sacred War has long been recognised but its amount has been underestimated: this has been allocated to the four individual Phokian condottieri after a close examination of Diodoros' account of their financial resources and payments. In the plates are illustrated over 400 die combinations, all those known to the author, together with several enlargements. Very few copies available.
