Clain-Stefanelli 2001*. Daehn 2042. Grierson p. 57. Kroh p. 10, “It consists of 8,593 coins… which were purchased en bloc by Spink & Son and privately dispersed in the 1920s. One excellent feature of this collection is the large number of Greek and Greek-Imperial bronzes published (many unlisted elsewhere) and the very high standard of writing utilized by Mr Forrer with introductions to each city and cross-references for all of the coins.”
