From an Anonymous Collector in Georgia

An anonymous collector from the state of Georgia (USA) has decided it is time to sell some of his coins. Since his interest has shifted toward ancient Greek coins, he is selling some Roman and Byzantine, especially his duplicates. Most of them are of the finest quality and many have passed through the hands of some of the better ancient coin specialist dealers. We hope you enjoy browsing these coins and find some you want for your own collection.
