Awesome molinari! If I may ask, what coins does this lot consist of?

Theres quite a few different minting authorities Ive identified so far, but mostly northern Greek (Thessaly, Macedon, etc.). Spotted quite a few Lydian as well, and even a few Seleukid and (I think) Sicilian coins.

Nice bulk lot of Greek coins, they all appear to be in great condition and ready for identification.

Any Phoenician coins amongst them  Roll Eyes

None that I've noticed so far.  Have Phoenician bronzes been found far outside the Levant?

Not entirely sure Nick. The Seleukid empire issued coins for various Phoenician cities and you did mention that your bulk lot might include coins from that region.

The few Seleukids I see are likely from Sardes, since there are many other coins from Sardes in the lot.
