Assembled over the course of 20 years, the Norman Davis Collection comprises examples of the major coinages of the Greek world. It is noteworthy not only for the consistently high standard of style and condition, but also for special series and individual rarities. Th Seleucid and Indo-Greek sequences are particularly impressive and any museum would be proud to possess unique specimens like the state of Melos, the tetradrachm of Heliocles of Bactria, and the tetradrachm of Ptolemy IV.

The publication conforms to the general format of the Sylloge Nummorum Graecorum fascicules in placing emphasis on the reproduction of the coins and limiting the text to basic numismatic data. References and dates are given only when there has been a thorough mint study of a particular coinage. All weights are in grams and all coins are silver unless otherwise indicated.

After more than two decades of assiduous study and the collection of new material, the time has come for a sequel to Arthur Houghton’s Coins of the Seleucid Empire in the Collection of Arthur Houghton (ACNAC 4). This new work publishes for the first time in one place all 900 coins and related objects in Houghton’s New Series collection. The bulk of the material reflects new types, control variants, and historical-economic interpretations that have been discovered in the years since CSE was first published. Coins of the Seleucid Empire in the Collection of Arthur Houghton, Part II (ACNAC 9) follows the same easy-to-use organizational principles as Arthur Houghton and Catharine Lorber’s Seleucid Coins, Part I, and includes brief historical introductions for each ruler, commentary on remarkable coins and new attributions, as well as type, ruler, and mint indices. The book is simultaneously an expansion of Houghton’s 1983 catalogue and a foretaste of the long awaited second part of Seleucid Coins.

ACNAC 10 accompanies the ANS’s Coinage of the Caravan Kingdoms: Studies in the Monetization of Ancient Arabia. Built over the last 20 years, the Martin Huth collection of pre-Islamic coins covering all parts of the Arabian Peninsula represents the largest assembly of such material ever put together, exceeding by far the holdings of existing Museum collections. 480 coins are fully described and illustrated on more than 70 plates. A comprehensive epigraphic index lists all inscriptions and monograms found on these intriguing series. Together with its sister volume—where many of the collection coins are discussed in detail—ACNAC 10 will serve as a reference volume for Arabian coins for years to come.

The Abraham and Marian Sofaer collection consists of 4,000 coins and related objects produced by the peoples who inhabited the Holy Land from the Persian period in the 5th and 4th centuries BCE through the Crusader Kingdom in the 13th century of the modern era. Assembled over more than 30 years, the collection contains gold, silver and bronze coins of the Persians, Greeks, Samarians, Jews, Nabataeans, Romans, Byzantines, Arabs, and Crusaders.

Highlights of the collection include a rich selection of the fractional silver coinage of Samaria; a comprehensive assemblage of the coins of the Hasmonaean and Herodian Jewish dynasties; superb examples of coinage issued during the Jewish revolts from Rome; fully representative runs of the coinages of the cities of Galilee, Samaria, Judaea, Idumaea, and the Decapolis under Roman rule; and rare examples of the Umayyad and Abassid coinages produced in Jerusalem and elsewhere.

All coins are fully described and illustrated on 238 plates. These volumes will serve as standard reference works for archaeologists, historians and numismatists studying two millennia of the history of the Holy Land.
