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.

The tenth volume of Coin Hoards is again focused on ancient Greek coinage. The inventory contains records of 471 new hoards or re-evaluations of old ones, and provides an indispensable supplement to the Inventory of Greek Coin Hoards and previous volumes of Coin Hoards. Ten articles are devoted to the full publication of a series of important new hoards related to the coinage of the Seleucid Empire, and are accompanied by 67 illustrative plates. These studies constitute a major advance in our understanding of the coinage and economy of this period, both within the Seleucid Empire and in the neighboring Greek world archaeological literature, newspapers, and law reports of treasure trove cases more thoroughly than has ever been done before.
