The second volume of this catalogue deals with the issues of mints in Asia Minor (including the islands and Cyprus), Syria, Phoenicia, Palestine (including Jewish coins of the Hasmonaean dynasty), Arabia, Mesopotamia, and other regions of the East, Egypt, Cyrenaica, and other regions of North Africa (including Carthage); also covered are the coinages of the Hellenistic Monarchies (Macedon, Thrace, Seleucids of Syria, Ptolemies of Egypt, Pergamum, Pontus, Bithynia, Cappadocia, Armenia, Parthia, Bactria and Indo-Greeks). The primary arrangement is geographical (clockwise around the Mediterranean basin) and the listings for Asia Minor are divided between Archaic issues (before circa 480 BC) and Classical and Hellenistic (later 5th century down to 1st century BC).
