This table shows the amazing success story of the collaboration with Nina Hristova and Gospodin Jekov. It is a story that is far from over. We owe this not least to the generosity of Mr. Josef Sermarini, who with his Forum Ancient Coins has made this space available to us. It proves how science can be done with this help.

So please see this  thread as integral supplement of Nikopolis 2021! In any case the year of the edition should always be added to the reference number, because sometimes the listed numbers have changed!

Thanks
Jochen
