This fascicule represents the second part of the first volume of Sylloge Nummorum Graecorum of the State Pushkin Museum of Fine Arts devoted to the coins of the Black Sea littoral. It comprises detailed descriptions and illustrations of the coin issues struck by the Greek cities situated on the western, southern and eastern shores of the Black Sea up to Roman times, thereby completing the publication of coin material from the circumpontic area stored in the Pushkin Museum. Despite the relatively small number of coins (fewer than 500 pieces) there are quite rare specimens among them originating from important pre-revolutionary private collections such as those of Rozanov and Bobrinskii. Most of the coins have never been published before and will be of special interest to scholars.
