Bibliography

SELECT BIBLIOGRAPHY

The following titles serve to correct erroneous regnal and mint attributions in Svoronos, as well as other untenable ideas. No attempt has been made to include the many publications which describe new varieties unknown to Svoronos.

GENERAL

1. Otto Mørkholm and Anne Kromann, SNG Copenhagen, vol. 41: Egypt: The Ptolemies (Copenhagen, 1974). Best general catalogue of Ptolemaic coins currently accessible to most numismatists, but many regnal and mint attibutions require revision.

2. Otto Mørkholm, Early Hellenistic Coinage (Cambridge, 1991), pp. 63–70, 101–111. Useful overview of Ptolemaic coinage to about 200 B.C., especially valuable for reconstructions of the bronze currency systems of Ptolemy II and Ptolemy II.
