Greek Alphabet and Coins

This page can help non-Greek collectors to decipher and understand the letters used on Greek coinage. It is taken from the book Greek Numismatic Epigraphy by John E. Hartmann and George Macdonald, published by Argonaut Inc., Chicago, 1969.

For Willamette Coin Club members, this book is available in the club library. It has a card cover and is only 323 pages in length, and is a great source of information not only regarding the alphabet but also how the letters were used to represent numbers. I hope you enjoy and use the chart. As the book is in the public domain, you can copy portions of the book that would be helpful to you.

To check the book out, contact , club librarian.
