Clain-Stefanelli 1887*. Daehn 1770, “This is one of the great Greek collections, expertly catalogued… Also includes some very useful indices, including a geographical index and indices to types, inscriptions, monograms, symbols and persons. These indices, along with the vast scope of the collection, make this one of the most useful catalogues for scholars, collectors, and dealers in Greek coins.” Grierson p. 57. Kroh p. 10.
