A note from BCD: After twenty-five years spent in Asia Minor and Sardis, his main excavation site, the author is certainly qualified to take us on a tour of the area. However, there are only five coin photographs in this book, showing the obverse only and apparently placed there just to illustrate a point in the text. It seems that Professor Hanfmann is more comfortable with sculpture than with coins, in spite of having, two years earlier, correctly doubted a false coin in his introduction to the Frederick M. Watkins collection publication.
