Olynthus: Summary of Coin Types

This is based primarily on Clement's publication of the coins from 1928-1934 in Olynthus 9, and is not intended to represent current numismatic opinion. Many of the dates and attributions of individual coin types have changed since Clement's publication.

For the coins excavated in 1928, 1931 and 1934, I have followed Clement's typology in Olynthus 9. In the publication of the coins of 1938 in Olynthus 14, Robinson inexplicably used a different typology. Where there were definite correspondences between the 1938 typology and Clement's, I have used Clement's. Where there is no exact equivalent in Clement's publication, I have prefixed "38:" before the type number.
