This volume is continuation of the series of catalogues describing coin collection of the Pushkin Museum in Sylloge format, which begun with publication of the ancient coins of the Black Sea Region (2011, 2014). The Pushkin Museum of Fine Arts possesses the third largest numismatic collection in Russia, after the State Hermitage and Historical Museum (Moscow). It is the only museum institution in Russia today, which provides access to its coin collection for the international scholarly community by publishing it in well-established format giving image and detailed description of every coin. Coins of the Greek cities of Italy and Sicily form noticeable part of the collection of the ancient coins in the Pushkin Museum and comprise 766 specimens. Along with ordinary issues there are among them fine and quite rare pieces, which undoubtedly will attract interested attention of both, scholars and coin collectors.
