here's a couple of new Magna Graecia auction catalogs I just added, both small and from Bank Leu in 1961. the first is all Tarentum (Taras), while the second covers a number of Greek cities in Lucania.
I really only needed the first one, which I've already made use of, but I decided to take advantage of the opportunity to get the set. and they were from Forvm, so why not?   Wink

I added volume one of the Oliver Hoover Handbook series a little while ago. This is the Magna Graecia installment, first in the series but last to be published, so I've been waiting awhile since it's really the only one i needed (although i have the Sicily volume as well).
I find it to be more supplemental than essential, but it's nice to have anyway...

A hearty thanks!  Your posts here have spurred me to join LibraryThing and do what I should have started long ago: catalog my coin books.  I now approach that site with the same determination and attention to detail as I do my coin collecting and cataloging.  So I am now over 80 Greek coin books and pamphlets cataloged, with many an inexpensive reprint among them, several volumes of the ANS ACNAC series, and yes, a couple SNGs. 

https://www.librarything.com/catalog/Anaximandros

My latest new book is also Hoover's Handbook of Greek Coins, volume I: Magna Graecia.  It satisfies a craving to have lots of references, especially those in contemporary works.

Cheers~

Cool!
Yes, LT is a great resource of which I'm surprised more coin collectors don't avail themselves.

Do you use the same handle there?

I use the name Anaximandros on LibraryThing, since Anaximander was already taken.  
I did find something of a learning curve there, as I did here, but it's worth the effort.
