KIRKUS REVIEW

Civilization's first widely accepted standardized coins are collected today for both their artistic and historical value. Jenkins, Keeper of the Department of Coins at the British Museum, discusses early Greek numismatics through the Hellenistic period, emphasizing important coinages and the symbolism of their designs. The text is accompanied by color and monochrome illustrations. A wealth of information, as they say.
