Seleucid Coins: A Comprehensive Catalogue is the detailed survey of Seleukid coinage, and the first comprehensive treatment of the coinage of that kingdom from the rise of Seleukos in 312 BC to the deposition of Antiochus XIII by Pompey in 64 BC. For this period, numismatists and collectors have previously relied on older monographs, available published collections, as well as a number of specialized articles. While these other references are useful, none have covered the broad range of coin emissions for the later period, when overall production was relatively greater in quantity. A practical and comprehensive reference covering Seleukid numismatics was required, and Seleucid Coins: A Comprehensive Catalogue (SC) fulfills that need. In addition to integrating and refining the earlier specialized studies, and greatly expanding on the material covered in published collections, SC offers many new mint attributions, a few new regnal attributions, and a new chronology for the later Seleukid kings. SC 2 contains a very important section of addenda and corrigenda to SC 1, and includes many new varieties that have appeared since the first part's publication. An appendix on Seleukid-related coin hoards offers an up-to-date recording of hoards pertaining to the SC 2 catalog, as well as a supplement to the hoards in Part 1. Further appendices include specialized studies of metrology, flan production, countermarks, overstrikes, imitations, and fourrées, 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 an indispensable reference.
