LIST OF UNEDITED GREEK COINS.

COPPER.

The coins contained in the present list comprise part of a collection of a celebrated connoisseur, which has been placed in my hands to arrange for public sale during this season. I have found in the “Imperial Greek Series" a vast

a number of hitherto unknown types of considerable interest and value to numismatic science, and I think that the members of the Society will agree with me that these important medallic monuments should be published in their Chronicle.

I therefore send an accurate descriptive list of the coins.
