In addition to integrating and refining the earlier specialized studies, and greatly expanding on the material covered in CSE and SNG Spaer, SC 2 offers many new mint attributions, a few new regnal attributions, and a new chronology for the later Seleucid kings. SC 2 also contains a very important section of addenda and corrigenda to Seleucid Coins: A Comprehensive Catalogue. Part 1, which includes many new varieties that have appeared since that work’s publication. An appendix on Seleucid-related coin hoards offers an up-to-date recording of hoards pertaining to the SC 2 catalog, as well as a supplement to the hoards in Part 1. Further appendices include specialized studies of metrology, flan production, countermarks, overstrikes, imitations, and fourrees, as well as tabular surveys of coin production by ruler and mint, and concordance tables to other major references. The comprehensive nature and high level of detail of this work make SC 2 an indispensable reference in its own right, as well as a valuable supplement to its predecesso.
