Sylloge Nummorum Graecorum, Volume V, Ashmolean Museum, Oxford. Part IX, Bosporus-Aeolis

Edited by Richard Ashton and Stanley Ireland

A British Academy Publication

Sylloge Nummorum Graecorum

This fully-illustrated catalogue publishes 1601 ancient Greek coins issued by cities stretching from the modern Crimea to the area of Aeolis on the west coast of modern Turkey. This is a most welcome addition to the SNG's cataloguing of the Ashmolean Museum's rich holdings, the first since Part IV appeared in 1981. It will be of interest to numismatists, coin collectors, and scholars and students of the archaeology and history of the Greek world.
