Alexander III
Coin References


Here's a selected bibliography of useful Alexander the Great numismatic books, journal articles, and other references. Included here are attribution references as well as references with background historical information. I've placed the references into three main groups: 1) primary references most important to the evolution of Alexander scholarship, 2) SNG collections, and 3) other references for cataloging and background information, and I've ordered the references chronologically within each group. I've preceded with an asterisk (*) those references I've personally found most useful or interesting for Alexander coinage. This is a long list of important references related to coins of Alexander and those depicting his image, but it's not an attempt to be a complete list.
