This catalogue is the tenth volume of the SNG Turkey Project and covers the Ionian and Lydian coins in the collection of Yavuz Tatis, a businessman and collector living in Izmir (ancient Smyrna). Majority of the coins were acquired from 1993 when Tatis started to form his collection and continued until 2010. It is inferred from the information given by vendors that the provenance of the coins was western Asia Minor in general. The catalogue presents 931 coins dating from Archaic to Roman Imperial period and the most represented ones are from Smyrna, Ephesus, Colophon, Phocaea, Magnesia ad Maeandrum, Miletus and Clazomenae in Ionia and Sardis, Philadelphia, Thyateira, Hypaipa and Magnesia ad Sipylum in Lydia. The unidentified coins are grouped under the title of "Uncertain Western Asia Minor" at the end of the catalogue. During the preparation of the catalogue, Arif Yaci, one of Tekin's doctoral students, helped from the beginning; he took the photographs of the coins and revised the catalogue as well. Besides, Michel Amandry, Sencan Altinoluk and Aliye Erol-Ozdizbay also revised the catalogue before going into press. Monograms were drawn by Armagan Tan, one of Tekin's Master's students.

The coin collection of the Istanbul Archaeological Museums, which was started to build up before the inauguration of the Museum in 1891, is not only the biggest coin collection in Turkey but also one of the important collections in the world. Many personages had their part in developing the collection to international level; first of all, Theodor Makridy Bey, who was appointed to the coin cabinet for a short period in 1892, and then for a lengthy time from 1897 to 1930; Kurt Regling, director of the Berlin State Museum and curator of its coin cabinet, was invited four times, in 1918, 1923, 1929 and 1930; and in early 1936, the coins were categorised, exhibited and published by Clemens E. Bosch, who had specialised on numismatics in Berlin, together with the Turkish numismatist Osman Nuri Andag; having taken on the duty the local experts continue to expand the collection. Having served numerous scholars until today, the coin cabinet with its low number of staff continues to serve local and foreign scholars. In spite of the immense size of the collection, it has not been possible to prepare satisfactory number of publications due to lack of sufficient number of experts, overloaded work days, and unfortunately limited space. This work encompasses the civic coins from the ancient Lydia region, a small fragment of our collection. About five thousand bronze coins published in the Sylloge Nummorum Graecorum Sammlung v. Aulock (SNG Aulock) from the collection of Hans von Aulock, who was a collector registered at our Museum, were donated by his son to our Museum in 1981 (inv. no. 1204) after his passing. However, in the present catalogue, already published coins from the von Aulock collection are excluded, rather a few unpublished examples are included. Technical abbreviations and references are given in the beginning of the catalogue; the catalogue is arranged according to the cities in alphabetical order and the coins of each city is given in chronological order. The data given for each coin in the catalogue includes as much as possible the metal type, weight in grams, diameter in millimetres, die axis expressed by the hours of a clock face, museum inventory number, way of acquisition (excavation find, purchase, donation, confiscation, etc.), the date of acquisition and the name of the source person for the donated and purchased coins, main parallel examples from major sources. At the end of the catalogue are the indices for the monograms, cities represented, emperors and imperial families represented, types, magistrate names, different legends, to facilitate the use of the catalogue by researchers.

Coinage is one of our key sources for the rich and fascinating history of the Hellenistic world (323–31 BC). This book provides students of the period with an up-to-date introduction to Hellenistic gold, silver and bronze coins in their cultural and economic contexts. It also offers new perspectives on four major themes in contemporary Hellenistic history: globalisation, identity, political economy and ideology. With more than 250 illustrations, and written in a lucid and accessible style, this book sheds new light on the diverse and multicultural societies of the Hellenistic world, from Alexander to Augustus. The author assumes no prior knowledge of Hellenistic history, and all Greek and Latin texts are translated throughout.

Rome Versus Carthage

The epic struggle between Carthage and Rome, two of the superpowers of the ancient world, is most famous for land battles in Italy, on the Iberian peninsula and in North Africa. But warfare at sea, which played a vital role in the First and Second Punic Wars, rarely receives the attention it deserves. And it is the monumental clashes of the Carthaginian and Roman fleets in the Mediterranean that are the focus of Christa Steinby's absorbing study. ?She exploits new evidence, including the latest archaeological discoveries, and she looks afresh at the ancient sources and quotes extensively from them. In particular she shows how the Romans' seafaring tradition and their skill, determination and resourcefulness eventually gave them a decisive advantage. In doing so, she overturns the myths and misunderstandings that have tend to distort our understanding of Roman naval warfare.
