"Catalogue of Greek Coins - The Ptolemies, Kings of Egypt" is a 1888 work by Reginald S. Poole. Reginald Stuart Poole (1832 - 1895) was an English numismatist, archaeologist, and orientalist whose best work is arguably his contributions to Encyclopædia Britannica on the subjects of on Egypt, Hieroglyphics and Numismatics. He also worked on "Smith's Dictionary of the Bible", and was "Keeper of Coins" at the British Museum. This volume looks at the money of Ptolemies, exploring the history of Alexander's successors and the related coinage. This book will appeal to those with an interest in ancient coins and antiques, as well as those with an interest in ancient Greek history. Contents include: "Principles of Classification", "Mints", "Weights", "Table I. Stemma Ptolemaeorum", "Table II. Chronology", "Table III. Mints and Dates", "Ptolemaeus I. And Ptolemaeus II.", "Ptolemaeus II, Philadelphus", "Ptolemaeus II. And Arsinoe II. With Ptolemaeus I. And Berenice I", "Arsinoe II., Philadelphus", etc. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author.
