    The Early Coins of Athens

    A new look at the coinages struck by Athens before the end of the Persian invasions in 479 B.C. These include the enigmatic "Wappenmünzen" coins and the so-called "un-wreathed" owls.

    A new chronology and classification is proposed for these issues, dividing the "Wappenmünzen" into three separate series and simplifying the Seltman groups of owls into four classes.

    Illustrated with enlarged photographs of 100 coins. Price: $14.95
