A collection of Phoenicia (199) in silver (42) and copper (157) housed in a cabinet, The collector remarks: 'The Autonomous Coinage of Phoenicia, although firmly within the Greek series, is remarkable for its maritime imagery and unique script, including several early dated series. The strategic location of Phoenicia (modern Lebanon) led to repeated incursions by Alexander and his successors, the Ptolemies and Seleukids, and ultimately by the Romans ; a turbulent history reflected in a further wealth of coin types'.
