Die linking explained
« on: April 09, 2019, 10:06:25 PM »
Just read a thoughtful paper by John Deyell, Greek Minting in Bactria. Deyell explains for a lay audience the technique of die linking (used with so much success on the early Plantagenet coins) and how it challenges long-held assumptions on Bactrian coins. The paper is here, free for those who have registered (no cost, but you get nag-mail.)

I am getting to be a real fan of Deyell. This man knows how to communicate. Recommended for those interested in Greek-Bactrian, Indo-Bactrian coins or numismatic methodology.

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.
