British Museum Catalog of Greek Coins

The British Museum published most of its massive collection of Greek coins in 29 volumes from 1873-1929. The series, called BMC Greek, is the largest collection of ancient Greek coins ever published. The volumes are:

The first volume of the British Museum's catalog of Indian coins is closely related to BMC Greek.

At least one more BMC Greek volume had been planned (Spain), but no further volumes appeared in this series after Cyrenaica. In the 1990s the museum returned to publishing, this time in SNG volumes. Two have been published as of this writing: Black Sea and Spain.

This web site is not affiliated with the British Museum, the publishers, or the authors. Many of the volumes are in the public domain. I've reproduced the plates of some volumes here, as an aid to scholars. For Peloponnesus I've added navigation and cross-reference features. I'll be adding similar features to the other volumes as time permits.
