      I am overjoyed to report that Seleucid Coins is at the printer and
      its release is imminent. See below and http://www.cngcoins.com/

      Houghton, Arthur,Catherine C. Lorber, and Oliver D. Hoover.
      Seleucid Coins: A Comprehensive Catalogue. Part 2: Seleucus IV
      through Antiochus XIII, 2 vols. New York and Lancaster, PA, 2008.
      Hardbound with dust jacket. Volume 1 contains xlvii + 701 pp.; Volume
      2 contains 536 pages, 119 plates, maps, appendices, concordances, and
      indices.

      Seleucid Coins: A Comprehensive Catalogue. Part 2 is the final part
      of the authors� detailed survey of Seleucid coinage, and the first
      comprehensive treatment of the kingdom�s issues from the death of
      Antiochus III in 187 BC to the deposition of Antiochus XIII by Pompey
      in 64 BC. For this period, numismatists and collectors have
      previously relied on two older published collections, Coins of the
      Seleucid Empire (CSE) and SNG Israel I: The Arnold Spaer Collection
      of Seleucid Coins (SNG Spaer), as well as a number of specialized
      articles. While these have been very useful references, none have
      covered the broad range of coin emissions for this period, when
      overall production was relatively greater in quantity. Indeed, coins
      of this period are more commonly seen in the marketplace as well as
      in collections. Consequently, a great need exists for a practical and
      comprehensive reference covering middle and late Seleucid
      numismatics, and Seleucid Coins: A Comprehensive Catalogue. Part 2
      (SC 2) fulfills that need.

      In addition to integrating and refining the earlier specialized
      studies, and greatly expanding on the material covered in CSE and SNG
      Spaer, SC 2 offers many new mint attributions, a few new regnal
      attributions, and a new chronology for the later Seleucid kings. SC 2
      also contains a very important section of addenda and corrigenda to
      Seleucid Coins: A Comprehensive Catalogue. Part 1, which includes
      many new varieties that have appeared since that work�s publication.
      An appendix on Seleucid-related coin hoards offers an up-to-date
      recording of hoards pertaining to the SC 2 catalogue, as well as a
      supplement to the hoards in Part 1. Further appendices include
      specialized studies of metrology, flan production, countermarks,
      overstrikes, imitations, and fourees, as well as tabular surveys of
      coin production by ruler and mint, and concordance tables to other
      major references. The comprehensive nature and high level of detail
      of this work make SC 2 an indispensible reference in its own right,
      as well as a valuable supplement to its predecessor.
