This is an essential reference for any collector of ancient Greek coinage - this volume is the 1st volume of a 2 volume set. This volume covers the "European" Greek coins, the 2nd volume is Asia Minor and African Greek coins. It is 356 pages long in total, 40 pages of introductory material which includes an illustrated history of Greek coinage, a showing of several different denominations, deities and helps for dating and various archaic alphabets and some more specialized books that were used in composing this handy reference.The geographical areas covered are: Spain, Gaul, Britain, the Celts of Central Europe and Asia Minor, Italy, Sicily, Northern Greece, Illyria & Central Greece, Peloponesia, the Cycladic isles and Crete. There are 3,395 coins listed in volume one and 1500 pictured. There are also maps of all the aforementioned areas at the beginning of each chapter.Not every single coin minted is pictured or listed but boy - if it's not in this book or it's companion Volume 2, buy it! This is a pretty thorough reference work and for what you will come across in the everyday market, this will certainly get you through most of what you will see. Anything more complete will be in a large multivolume set costing several hundred or possibly a couple thousands of dollars so I would not pass on this book waiting for something better. I also would not count on finding an internet site or software program anytime soon that will prove to fill this need. The one strike against this book is you must not take these prices as set in stone. They do not reflect the new reality of today's rapid exchange of sales taking place on the internet. In addition to that, the prices are in British pounds as the author is from the UK and this will throw some American users.
