Rather than discussing the historical, political, or economic deductions that can be drawn from coins, this report simply presents an illustrated catalogue of all coins found during excavations in Corinth from 1896 to 1929. The range of different periods published is great, from Corinthian mints of the Greek period to Frankish coins imported by later invaders. Examples of Greek, Roman, Byzantine, Frankish, and Venetian coins are presented. The Turkish conquest is taken as the end of the period represented.
