Seleucid Coins, A Comprehensive Catalogue, Part 2 is the final part of the authors’ detailed survey of Seleucid coinage, and the first comprehensive treatment of the kingdom’s issues from the death of Antiochus III in 187 BC to the deposition of Antiochus XIII by Pompey in 64 BC. For this period, numismatists and collectors have previously relied on two older published collections, Coins of the Seleucid Empire (CSE) and SNG Israel I: The Arnold Spaer Collection of Seleucid Coins (SNG Spaer), as well as a number of specialized articles. While these have been very useful references, none have covered the broad range of coin emissions for this period, when overall production was relatively greater in quantity. Indeed, coins of this period are more commonly seen in the marketplace as well as in collections. Consequently, a great need exists for a practical and comprehensive reference covering middle and late Seleucid numismatics, and Seleucid Coins, A Comprehensive Catalogue, Part 2 (SC 2) fulfills that need. In addition to integrating and refining the earlier specialized studies, and greatly expanding on the material covered in CSE and SNG Spaer, SC 2 offers many new mint attributions, a few new regnal attributions, and a new chronology for the later Seleucid kings. SC 2 also contains a very important section of addenda and corrigenda to Seleucid Coins: A Comprehensive Catalogue. Part 1, which includes many new varieties that have appeared since that work’s publication. An appendix on Seleucid-related coin hoards offers an up-to-date recording of hoards pertaining to the SC 2 catalogue, as well as a supplement to the hoards in Part 1. Further appendices include specialized studies of metrology, flan production, countermarks, overstrikes, imitations, and fourees, as well as tabular surveys of coin production by ruler and mint, and concordance tables to other major references. The comprehensive nature and high level of detail of this work make SC 2 an indispensable reference in its own right, as well as a valuable supplement to its predecessor.

Seleucid Coins, Part I, is the first comprehensive treatment of early Seleucid coinage since Edward T. Newell’s Eastern Seleucid Mints (1938) and Western Seleucid Mints (1941). It expands on Newell’s catalogues with hundreds of new varieties that have come to light over the past sixty years, bringing together issues described in the scholarly literature and in commercial publications, as well as much material that is published here for the first time. In addition, Houghton and Lorber have critically examined both Newell’s attributions and those of other scholars. They propose a number of significant reattributions, some of which redraw the map of Seleucid numismatics.

Seleucid Coins is intended to be, first and foremost, a practical resource for coin identification. It is designed to be accessible to beginners and to numismatists who do not specialize in the Seleucids. The catalogues are organized in historical and geographic order, first by reign, then by mint, then by metal, denomination and issue. There are indices that enable searches by control marks, remarkable types, remarkable legends, and countermarks. More than one hundred plates illustrate representative examples of virtually every coin type and denomination from every mint.

In addition to an easy entry to the identification of Seleucid coins, the book contains extensive historical and other reference material that allows a deeper understanding of the historical context of Seleucid coin production. There is an introductory essay for each reign, opening with a summary of historical events, and proceeding with an overview of the ruler’s coinage, mint policies, and iconographic program. Yet broader overviews are available in the front matter: a chronological table that juxtaposes major historical and numismatic developments, a stemma of Seleucid genealogy, and general observations on mint function and administration. A succession of maps illustrates the changing constellations of Seleucid mints. The appendices offer in-depth treatment of special topics, including bronze denominations and metrology, and countermarks appearing on Seleucid bronze coins. Other appendices are resources for further study: a complete list of hoards containing early Seleucid coins, and detailed surveys of the monetary output of the early Seleucid kings by reign and by region. Seleucid Coins, Part 1, will become an indispensable reference work for collectors, dealers, and scholars, including those in the fields of archaeology, history and art history. Two volumes, illustrated.

Softcover, 53 pp., 28 pls. Catalogue.

Price: US$4.98 (no Member discount)

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.
