An excellent broad overview of the Greek coin series that looks at the development and use of coinage in the Greek world from its introduction to the late Hellenistic period. It begins with a description of the modern techniques that contemporary numismatists use to obtain information from coins and hoards. Further chapters deal with the spread of coinage to all parts of the greek world. Coinage production and design and the role of coins in the life of people are then discussed, followed by chapters on the classical period, Alexander the Great and the late Hellenistic world.
