PREFATORY NOTE.

ON account of the great extent of the Greek section of the Montagu
Collection it was deemed advisable not to include all in the first
sale, but to reserve a certain portion for a second sale. This portion,
which is now offered, completes the Greek section of the Collection.
To it has been added a small Series of Roman Silver and Copper
Coins and Medallions, which had been formed by Mr. Montagu.

In the Greek portion of this Catalogue we have not that succession
of rare and brilliant pieces, which were to be found in the first sale, yet
there are not a few which are far above the average either for rarity or
for preservation. Notably the following: 42, Tetradrachm of Agri-
gentum ; 55, Tetradrachm of Messana ; 58, Didrachm of Naxos, by
Prokles ; 76, Decadrachm of Syracuse ; 86, N Drachm of Agathocles ;
105, Tetradrachm of Chalcidice ; 115, Double Stater of Alexander the
Great ; 120, The excessively rare Tetradrachm of the same king ;
167, Stater of Panticapaeum ; 181, Drachm of Alexander of Pherae ;
215, Tetradrachm of Lacedsenion ; 217, M of Antinoiis, struck at
Mantineia ; 235, M Stater with Frog, unpublished ; 382, Tetradrachm
of Tripolis ; 421, Stater of Ptolemy Soter ; 427, Decadrachm of
Arsinoe II ; 448, Tetradrachm of Carthage. And in the Roman Series,
499, Denarius of the Junia Family, fy eid. mar. ; 520, Denarius of
Domitia ; 524, Denarius of Pescennius Niger ; 531, Denarius of
Gordianus Africanus Senr. ; 535, Denarius of Tranquillina ; 537, Dena-
rius of Cornelia Supera ; 538, Denarius of Dryantilla ; 543, Denarius
of Carausius, unpublished ; 567, M Medallion of Claudius, V de
britannis ; 600, Large Brass of Galba, with beautiful patina ; Large
Brass of Vespasian, " Judaea Capta ; " 654, M Medallion of Commodus,
unpublished ; &c.

* * * *

As to the disposal of further portions of Mr. Montagu's Collection we
are requested to state that it is proposed to sell at this House in May
next the extensive Collection of English Medals. In June next will be
offered for sale the Series of English Copper Coins and Patterns, together
with the Anglo-Gallic and Irish sections, and in the following November
the dispersion of this Collection will be brought to an end by the sale of
the reserved portion of the English Series.
