Daehn 3474, “Describes about 4100 varieties of coins struck in the name of Alexander the Great (lifetime and posthumous issues), his half-brother and successor, Philip Arrhidaeus, and those of Lysimachus of the Alexander types... This is the most comprehensive study of Alexander coinage ever published and is the standard reference for the series.” Kroh p. 24 (five stars), “simply the ultimate reference for this series”.
