HELLENISTIC COINAGE OF MARSEILLES  

   Georges Depeyrot announces the publication of his book, 
   "Les Monnaies Hellénistiques de Marseille",  1999, 128 pages. 
   Thanks to E. Tomlinson Fort for providing a summary of the 
   Press Release, which yours truly undoubtedly butchered in 
   summarization:  

   "Marseilles was the most  important Greek colony in Gaul.  It 
   produced Greek coins for nearly 525 years beginning in the 
   middle of the 5th century BC.  

   The text discusses the major coin designs, such as a lion on the 
   reverse of the silver issues and a bull on the reverse of the 
   bronze issues.   The work has a full listing of all the types struck,  

   their chronology, with illustrations in text, as well as four plates 
   at the end of the book and illustrations as well as an index to 
   aid in identification."
