Sylloge Nummorum Graecorum

To publish illustrated catalogues of Greek coins in public and private collections in the British Isles in both print and electronic formats

Chair: Professor Ian Carradice
Project Director: Dr Adrian Popescu

The Sylloge Nummorum Graecorum project is part of an international project sponsored by the Union Académique Internationale. The project is publishing a series of volumes describing and illustrating the unusually rich and varied collections of Greek coins that exist in the British Isles.

A wide period of ancient Greek history is covered, including Imperial, as well as all areas of Greek habitation and colonisation. The illustrations of the coins and their detailed numismatic descriptions appear on facing pages, and the more recent volumes contain comprehensive indexes.

Volumes are published by Oxford University Press. Some older volumes are available from Oxbow Books, from Spink or other retailers.
