The "Greek and Roman Provincial Coins" of Lydia is the first corpus of coins of Lydia which, unlike BMC, SNG Copenhagen, SNG München, Gökyıldırım, Von Aulock, Mionet etc, is not limited to examples in single collections. The new work of Lydian coins, comprising of four volumes - one for electrum, gold and silver, the other three covering the vast variety of bronze civic and provincial Lydian coins from Kroisos to the Valerian family, documents coins in public, national and private collections as well as hundreds of new varieties which have been sold up to Autumn 2019.
Approximately 7,500 Lydian coins are listed (approx. 95% of which are illustrated), with additional pages of indices, lists of types, monograms, references and sources make the new four-volume GRPC corpus an indispensible work for dealers and collectors who aim to describe their coins with precision.
