New Book About Ancient Coins

February 27, 2018

blogThe early coins of Athens probably receive more collector interest than any other ancient series.  Despite this, there continue to be many uncertainties about their age, sequence, and historical context.

I recently bought a modest little obol from the earliest owl mintage, which was identified differently by different coin dealers who offered the coin.  In an effort to figure out which dealer was correct, I did a thorough review of the various guides and professional articles on the subject. My research gradually developed into some new ideas about Athenian coinage, which I am now presenting in the form of a book entitled The Early Coins of Athens. It is illustrated with photographs of 100 coins as well as diagrams and charts.
