About the Book

Since no special handbook has existed until now examining the field of Greek Numismatic Epigraphy as a separate entity in the group of historical sciences, the idea of forming one from the articles by John E. Hartmann published in the North American Journal of Numismatics plus three artiels by George MacDonald seemed, from the beginning, to be a good one and one which would help both historians and numismatists to understand the historical value of Greek coin inscriptions.
