NEW BOOK: COINS OF THE SELEUCID EMPIRE IN THE COLLECTION OF ARTHUR HOUGHTON

[Below are excerpts from the text of an ANS press release
issued earlier this week.  -Editor]

The American Numismatic Society is pleased to announce the
release of Coins of the Seleucid Empire in the Collection
of Arthur Houghton, Part II (ACNAC 9) by Oliver Hoover.
After more than two decades of assiduous study and the
collection of new material comes the sequel to Arthur
Houghton's Coins of the Seleucid Empire in the Collection
of Arthur Houghton (ACNAC 4).

This new work publishes for the first time in one place
all 900 coins and related objects in Houghton's New Series
collection.  The bulk of the material reflects new types,
control variants, and historical-economic interpretations
that have been discovered in the years since CSE was first
published. Coins of the Seleucid Empire in the Collection
of Arthur Houghton, Part II (ACNAC 9) follows the same
easy-to-use organizational principles as Arthur Houghton
and Catharine Lorber's Seleucid Coins, Part 1 and includes
brief historical introductions for each ruler, commentary
on remarkable coins, new attributions, and type, ruler,
and mint indices. The book is simultaneously an expansion
of Houghton's 1983 catalogue and a foretaste of the
long-awaited second part of Seleucid Coins.

This volume is part of The American Numismatic Society’s
publication series, Ancient Coins in North American Collections
(ACNAC), which systematically describes and illustrates
ancient coins in significant private and institutional
collections and is intended to record collections of numismatic
value which are not readily accessible or are likely to be
dispersed.  For further information contact Megan Fenselau
