Format: Hardcover
This is an outstanding book, in terms of both photography, and the history it presents. The book has photography of some of the most beautiful, and highly rare Greek coins; including some of the most elusive of the Hellenistic portraiture. I would highly recommend this book to any Greek collector or history buff.
