Arrow Holy Land city coins

Hello,
I want to buy a reference book for Holy Land city coins. I am aware of Spijkermans book Coins of the Decapolis.... and a newly published work by Meshorer/Sofaer Coins of the Holy Land. The Spijkerman book costs around $100, the other around $190. Is any one familiar with these two books in terms of which shows the most plate examples of city coins such as Antipatris and Diospolis? Is the Meshorer/Sofaer book worth twice as much for showing more coin photos? The online sites like Wildwinds and acsearch are helpful but only show a few examples from the cities. I have Hendin's fourth edition which is very informative, but as a guide shows just a few coins from the cities. Thanks, Mark
