Aitolia, Lokris, Phokis, Boiotia, Euboia, Attica, Megaris, and
Corinthia, Sixth to First Centuries B.C., is the eighth book to
reach publication from the series.
The work is labeled volume No. 4 in a series of 13 volumes, each
covering a specified area of Greek coinage, authored by Oliver D. Hoover.
Beginning in central Thessaly with Achaia Phthiotis, this volume
moves clockwise around that region, covering tribal issues, coins of
the Thessalian League and the region’s various cities. From Akarnania
the catalog moves eastward along the Corinthian Gulf to the heart of
central Greece and the Isthmus of Corinth, ending with Tenea.
The coinage within each region and city is arranged chronologically,
beginning with the Archaic issues and continuing through the later
civic issues in the name of Alexander. Listings are arranged with gold
coins first, followed by silver and bronze; each metal is arranged by
denomination, largest to smallest.
The series is designed to aid users in quick and accurate
identification of Greek coins, while providing a cross-reference for
each entry to a major work, to allow an inquirer to pursue more
The new volume is priced at $65 plus shipping.
