A New Volume by Corpus Nummorum

A Turkish-German collaborative project on over 1,500 Thracian and Moesian coins from the museums of Ankara, Edirne, Kırklareli, Tekirdağ, and Troy (Çanakkale), as well as selected Turkish private collections.

With these rich holdings from the Turkish collections, this volume opens up one of the largest compilation of sources for the nearly eight-hundred-year history of ancient coinage in Thrace and Moesia. The coins are described according to the standards of the Sylloge Nummorum Graecorum series.  All specimens are represented photographically and are recorded with their core data. By entering a type number of the Corpus Nummorum web portal, an English description can also be retrieved. The catalogue contains several previously unknown types and a large number of new typological variants.
