Boehringer, E. Die Münzen von Syrakus. Two volumes. Berlin & Leipzig; Verlag von Walter de Gruyter & Co. 1929. 4to., pp. vi, (2), 297, (7); 32 plates with further illustrations in the text. Both parts in the original publisher’s cloth, lettered in red. A little dusty and bumped at the extremities, the binding somewhat shaken but internally clean. An almost fine set of the much preferred, original edition, of this major work. Essential for the series and very rarely offered, especially in the original boards. (2)
Clain-Stefanelli 2257*. Daehn 3120. Grierson p. 64. Kroh p. 21 (four stars), “A die corpus of the early silver issues from 510 to c.415 B.C. Over 733 die-couples are listed with 364 obverse and 500 reverse dies illustrated. Such is the quality of his research that over sixty years later there are very few new dies or die combinations to add to this impressive list and the dating criteria needs to be only slightly adjusted.”
