The complete series of sales of the Hunt brothers’ collections of ancient coins, including all four Greek and Roman sales and both Byzantine sales. The Hunt brothers began assembling their collections in the late 1970s, frequently buying large quantities of remarkable coins at aggressive prices. Tom Eden catalogued the Greek coins, with David Tripp cataloguing the Roman material. Simon Bendall was consulted on the Byzantine coins. The sale catalogues are expertly written and beautifully illustrated.
