* Andrei Sergeev (1933-1998) amassed a large collection of mainly imitations from Greek and Roman coins, but also Parthian and Byzantine, that were found in the USSR in the second half of the 20th century. This encompasses a vast area, between the Balkans and China. Many coins one would recognize as Celtic, but also different Hellenistic and Roman imitations may be found, and coins that were inspired by Seleucian and Bactrian examples. The book also contains some essays by Sergeev, about the imitations of Macedonian and Thasos tetradrachms, imitated Roman denarii and aurei, about the Taman denarius (Crimea), the Baltic miliaresion, various imitations from the Trans-Caucasian region and the Central Asian copper imitations of Parthian drachms. A treasure of knowledge about a rare subject.
