Sylloge Nummorum Graecorum: The Collection of the American Numismatic Society

The Sylloge Nummorum Graecorum: The Collection of the American Numismatic Society (SNG ) was an irregular issue, which the ANS published to systematically describe and illustrates coins in the Society’s Greek collection. The Society’s participation in the SNG began in 1961 with the publication of the Burton Y. Berry collection, most of which eventually came to the Society through annual donations; the last part (principally coins of Lycia and Cilicia) was withdrawn after Berry’s death, and the SNG volumes stand as a record of his collecting in this area. In 1969 the ANS published the first SNG fascicule of its collection, beginning with coins of Italy. The availability of Ya’akov Meshorer to edit the coins of Palestine and South Arabia series led to a departure from strict geographical order. Other experts have been engaged as opportunity allowed to deal with specialized areas of the collection. For instance, Denyse Bérend compiled the 6th fasicule (Sicily) and Osmund Bopearachchi the 9th (Bactria).
