The tenth volume of Coin Hoards is again focused on ancient Greek coinage. The inventory contains records of 471 new hoards or re-evaluations of old ones, and provides an indispensable supplement to the Inventory of Greek Coin Hoards and previous volumes of Coin Hoards . Ten articles are devoted to the full publication of a series of important new hoards related to the coinage of the Seleucid Empire, and are accompanied by 67 illustrative plates. These studies constitute a major advance in our understanding of the coinage and economy of this period, both within the Seleucid Empire and in the neighboring Greek world.
