Ancient Egypt

Coins of Egypt, and especially Tetradrachms issued in Alexandria, are often referenced by Dattari-Savio number in this blog.   There is a very informative article from Giovanni Dattari and his collection by Lucia Carbone from the American Numismatic Society magazine in 2018.  Here are a few examples of Egyptian coins - mostly from Roman Egypt, and with a few that date from Ptolemaic period.
