The famous collector BCD writes in his catalogue:  EUBOIA, The land that,s rich in cows!
Particularly appaealing about Euboian coinage is the way it moves through time, never losing
its interest.Beginning with the austere simplicity of Archaic issues, progressing to the handsome
images of Classical times and ending with the refined charm of Hellenistic die engraving, the variety
is indeed amazing as well as challenging.
They remain fascinating pieces of art and history.
