Georges Depeyrot writes:
Pierre Bastien, one of the best numismatists passed away last week.
His most famous work was devoted to the Roman mint of Lyon (France) and he organized the "Numismatique Romaine" series of books where many volumes were published.
Georges - thanks for letting us know. Thanks are also due to George Kolbe for pointing me to the 1987 Festschrift honoring Bastien, and to Elizabeth Hahn for providing a scan of Bastien's photo from the American Numismatic Society library's copy of the book.
