I saw some threads about how many Roman provincial coins can we cover, and all the Roman Imperial coins. But unfortunately there is not such a thread about Ancient Greek coins. So, I decided to open one for this, lets see how many cointalk members will participate! I have made an excel sheets with most of the Greek poleis that existed, I know this are not all because there are some of these more obscure places in Thrace, Sicily etc. Examples are Kentoripai and Orthagoreia. There are approximately around 1200 Greek poleis and around 500 poleis in the spreadsheet, that already shows how many poleis there are that many people probably never heard of! In the excel sheet I keep track of all the cities that are owned by cointalk members and it would be great when I also have to add any cities I do not have in the list yet but cointalk owners do own coins from, this means it are coins from the more unknown/obscure places. Excel sheet with Ancient Greek cities in alphabetical order. Post your coins with description and optionally a map of the Ancient Greek city the coin comes from! Let's do this using the alphabet, starting with all cities starting with the letter A. Every 3 days I will make a comment for the next letter. If you have missed a letter (because the 3 days were not enough) then just place it anyway, that is not a problem. If the coin has an unknown mint city, then place it using the first letter of the region (for example Rhodos, Aegina, Lesbos). After we have went through the alphabet, everyone can post coins regardless of what the first letter of the city is, for example when you got a new addition, in this way we can keep the thread alive and increase the amount of cities! If the coin comes from an Ancient Greek city in a time period where it is part of a Roman province, it can not be posted (as it is a Roman provincial coin then). If something is unclear or should be corrected, let me know! I hope everyone will enjoy this thread ---------------------------- I will start! Ambrakia, Epeiros Kingdom of Epeiros. Pyrrhos.
