Daehn 1329. Kroh 11: ìa very unusual catalogue indeed, as the author presents some 527 mostly superb ancient Greek coins from his collection (all illustrated with exceptional photos and enlargements), but does not present a catalogue of them as such. Instead he wrote it as an introduction to the series and accompanies the illustrations with narrative accounts on how he became bitten by the ëcoin-bugí and historical vignettes of the cities that struck the coins illustrated.î.
