Greek Antiquities

Greek, Bronze Krater(?) Handle, Ornamented With Head of Dionysos, c. 400 - 200 B.C.

Click for a larger photo
This handle was probably once attached to a krater, a punch-bowl type vessel used for diluting and serving wine. The earliest kraters were bronze and almost exclusively the volute-type. Very few bronze kraters have survived. Most often only the handles remain.

100 Greatest Ancient Coins

Click for a larger photo
The coins covered range from the first typeless electrum struck in Asia Minor in the 7th Century B.C. to the desparate silver issues of the last Byzantine emperor, Constantine XI, in 1453. Coins of major rarity are discussed as well as common issues that had a strong social, political or economic impact on their time. This is one of the few books that covers the entire time frame of ancient numismatics. While it is a useful book for beginners, it is also worthwhile for experienced numismatists.
BK43232. 100 Greatest Ancient Coins by Harlan J. Berk, 1st edition, 2008, coffee-table-size, 144 pages, full color, with outstanding photographs and engaging stories for every coin; $24.95 SALE PRICE $22.46
