Requier, Pierre. Le monnayage d'pidaure la lumire d'un nouveau trsor. Revue Suisse de Numismatique, 72, 1993, p. 29-46.
ex- BCD Collection; ex-1979/80 Epidauros Hoard (CH VII, 69).

Until the discovery of the Epidauros hoard, the hemidrachms of Epidauros were exceedingly rare, a handful of examples being known. The Epidauros hoard brought an additional 145 examples to light. Most of the specimens found in the market in the last thirty years originated from the hoard, including the four examples in this collection. Alan Walker and BCD divided Requiers catalogue into four series, versus the two originally detailed in the latter. The Requier Series number as quoted in the attribution reflects the subdivision of the Epidauros emissions by Alan Walker and BCD, while the bracketed number is the original series number of Requier.
