TOME QUATRIÈME: COMPRENANT LES MONNAIES DE LA GRÈCE SEPTENTRIONALE AUX VE ET IVE SIÈCLES AVANT J.-C. Paris: Ernest Leroux, 1926. Lacking title page; iv pages; 1100 double columns [550 pages].

Of the highest importance. Clain-Stefanelli, in Numismatics--An Ancient Science, heaps praise on Babelon and his many authoritative works on Greek numismatics, calling the Traité “his greatest work.” Complete set are infrequently offered. The present volumes are those dedicated to northern Greece and cover Acarnania, Epirus, Corcyra, Illyricum, Thessaly, Macedon (including Philip II and Alexander), Thrace, etc. Clain-Stefanelli 1809*: “An unfinished but monumental work, indispensable for the scholar.” Daehn 19.
