The catalogue was published to accompany the exhibition "Tales of coins - Narrations of cities". On November 29th 2007 FHW purchased from the German collector Karl Eduard Reinhard Donat a Coin Collection consisting of 12,854 ancient Greek coins, seals, weights and small items.
In the first part of the catalogue there is a presentation how was the collection created, preserved and enriched through three generations of the Donat family. Then, we have a presentation of the exhibition per showcase, with an explanation of the rationale of the exhibition. So, the visitors of the exhibition are able, with the help of this catalogue, to gain the most from visiting the exhibition. In the end, there is brief examination of the history of the coins and of the ancient Greek and Roman finance, since the coin, apart from a work of art, also had a specific economic use.
In the second part of the catalogue there is a scientific presentation of the 160 coins of the exhibition. Each coin is photographed and is accompanied by a complete description.

The Book is on sale at the Museum Shop, in the Cultural Centre of FHW, as well as at major bookstores in Greece. For further information contact the Museum Shop of the Cultural Centre, tel.: +(30) 212 254 0000 or write at sales@ime.gr.
