Coins, Artists, and Tyrants


Coins, Artists, and Tyrants contains the first fully translated and revised text of Lauri O. Tudeer, Die Tetradrachmenprägung von Syrakus in der Periode der signierenden Künstler, as well as a biography of Tudeer, plus a completely new evaluation of signed coin dies and the artists who produced them. Over 100 years after its first publication, Wolfgang R. Fischer-Bossert completely updates the scholarship and bibliography on signed Syracusan tetradrachms, making this book the single most important source on the subject. The book includes plates, a full-color die-link chart, and three pull-outs featuring Syracusan tetradrachms and hoards.

Reviews & Quotes

""Numismatists and ancient art historians will hail this new book by Fischer-Bossert [...] Although the original goal of this book was to provide an English translation of Tudeer’s article and to expand his database, the final product is much more than just “an updated catalogue of Tudeer’s original work.”"
