Information concerning the MGC-site ("The Coins of Magna Graecia")

Welcome to "The Coins of Magna Graecia".
My aim is to built lists of published Greek coin types of Italy and Sicily (including Carthaginian issues from Zeugitana, Sardinia etc.) till 212 BC. The coin illustrations come largely from the stock of commercial numismatists and public collections. They are not published before, unless indicated.
Inevitably these lists will contain errors and misinterpretations of the literature. I hope that you will inform me about these errors so that in time an up to date list will arise.

All the coin lists are still under construction. The coin list of Syracusa is most advanced.
