SNG Bobokov (SNG Bulgaria I)

Sylloge Nummorum Graecorum, Bulgaria, The Bobokov Bros. Collection, Thrace & Moesia Inferior, Vol. I: Deultum. (Sofia, 2005).

By Dimitar Draganov


The first volume of SNG Bulgaria catalogues 2010 coins of the Roman colony of Deultum (Colonia Flavia Pacis Deultensium) in Thrace and represents the most complete collection of coins of this city in the world. The collection, formed over many years, largely from material found in Southern Bulgaria, includes many unpublished coin types, as well as a vast number of new (primary legend) variants. The large body of material has allowed for the correction of many erroneous coin descriptions made by previous scholars. It also provides a thorough overview of Deultumís coinage.

1 page photo of the Bobokov Brothers
1 page preface
2 pages bibliography
1 page map
1 page notes
134 pages of plates with corresponding pages of descriptions (2010 coins)
1 page emperors
13 pages legends
6 pages of types (in an index style)

The book is well printed and bound in an A4 size.   The paper is very high quality (very glossy)

Descriptions consist of;
Obverse description (and any letters)
Reverse description (and any letters)
Die orientation (as a clock number)
Other references (usually Jurukova, some Moushmov and others)

This is a great book if you are interested in Roman Provincial coins from Deultum. With 2010 examples, it covers alot of the types that were minted from this city.  The photographs are excellent and show the detail well - though as usual some of the coins are of middling quality.  If I do have one criticism is that there are alot of duplicates, some coin types have up to 10 examples - at a rough guess there may be actually less than 1000 different types present.

Again this is not a definitive list of all the coins from the mint - I know of types that are not represented - but it is a very comprehensive representation that would cover most of the basis.

There is no background material to speak of but this is still a worthy (if slightly expensive) addition to the library.

All coins are guaranteed for eternity
