Bologna: FMR, 2007. 24 p.

The object of the booklet is the KIKPE Numismatic Collection, comprised by ca. 3,000 coins at the time of the publication. The collection contains mostly Ancient Greek and Byzantine coins, alongside with other categories of coins (Roman Provincial, Western Medieval, Islamic, Modern Greek). A brief overview is employed to underline the raison d’être of the collection, which covers a broad spectrum in terms of geography and time, and its focus on the bronze coinage, the “small change” used for everyday dealings. At the same time, a number of the Foundation’s acquisitions is showcased in an aesthetic fashion.
