A very scarce work on the ancient coins of the Arabian peninsula by one of the finest Orientalists of the 19th century. Langlois was a fascinating man, publishing am impressive corpus of work in a number of different fields, all of them marked by complexity and difficulty, before dying at the age of 40.
