about this item

Coins of the Ptolemaic Empire, Part 1, by Catharine Lorber, is the long-anticipated catalogue of coins struck by the first four Ptolemaic kings of Egypt, that essentially rewrites the sections on these rulers in J. N. Svoronos’s classic, but now much out of date, Ta Nomismata tou Kratous ton Ptolemaion (1904). Lorber not only catalogues and attributes the coins with the support of the very latest archaeological and hoard information, but also provides extensive historical and numismatic introductions that give the coins deeper context and meaning. The work is filled out by added treatments of the coinages of Cleomenes of Naucratis, the predecessor of Ptolemy I in Egypt, and of Ptolemy Ceraunus and Ptolemy of Telmessus, members of the Lagid dynasty ruling their own kingdoms outside of Egypt.
