By Wolfram Weiser

Das Institut für Altertumskunde der Universität zu Köln besitzt eine Sammlung von 187 ptolemäischen und 17 thematisch 'verwandten' Bronzemünzen. Diese Stücke repräsentieren 184 Typen, die Sammlung weist additionally kaum Dubletten auf. Viele Typen sind sehr selten, elf zum Teil sehr wichtige bisher unbekannt (Nr. 1, C (hinter 6), forty seven, one hundred and one, 119, 124, 127, 139, L (hinter 161), 176 und 180). In diesem Katalog sind die Münzen chronologisch geordnet und durchnumeriert. Exemplare, die nicht eigentlich pharaonisches bzw. pto­ lemäisches Geld waren, sind alphabetisch bezeichnet, von 'A' bis '0'. Münzen mit Gegenstempeln sind - wenn es sinnvoll erschien - an die chronologische Stelle der Gegenstempelung eingeordnet, nicht an die Stelle der Prägung der Münze. Jedes Exemplar ist mit Hilfe der Indices am Schluss dieses Kataloges leicht aufzufinden. Die Fotos habe ich erstellt; auch die Gestaltung stammt von mir. Für die Übernahme der Fotokosten sei der Nordrhein-Westfälischen Akade­ mie der Wissenschaften gedankt. Im Prinzip wurde der textual content (links) gegenüber dem Bild (rechts) an­ geordnet (nur an drei Stellen lag es nahe, drei Textseiten zusammenzu­ fassen). Zusammengehörende Bilder, etwa im 'Kontext' einer Emission, wurden nach Möglichkeit auf einer einzigen Tafel montiert. Zusätzlich zu den Fotos in Originalgrösse sind einige vergrösserte Abbildungen (ohne Nummer) auf jeweils derselben Tafel beigegeben.
