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
"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."
