The publication of the great eighteenth-century collection of William Hunter in Glasgow University marks an important stage in the British SNG project. With accompanying descriptions and over 6000 citations of earlier studies, this catalogue of the first half of the Hunterian's Roman Provincial coins illustrates the 2428 coins produced in the West, and East as far as Commagene. Coins provide a major source for the study of the ancient world, but the 'Greek Imperials' have perhaps still to be fully appreciated in the context of the Roman Empire. From the death of Caesar to the reign of Diocletian, almost a thousand cities in the provinces issued coins with types and inscriptions that symbolize their cultural identity. The coins published in this substantial volume offer a wealth of information about many aspects of local life in that period, including religion, architecture and administration.
