As icy weather spread across most States in the Union, ACE Teachers had just received a marvellous book to read on their “ Snow days” . Thanks to noted numismatic author, Wayne Sayles, and the generous donation of his book “Ancient Coin Collecting”, teachers could both relax in the warmth and make new Lesson Plans! His book has great coin images and is brimming over with illustrated background information on Roman, Greek, Biblical and other ancient coins of all types...
It is the sort of book you keep on your desk with Post it stickers on the pages giving the timeline of all Roman and Byzantine Emperors, listing of all Roman and Greek Deities and Personifications, Greek and Latin alphabets, maps of different regions, etc - You want to see Homer on a coin, various Alexander the Great coins, an Athenian owl, Elephants on various coins, Biblical coins, Parthian coins, Baktrian coins, Celtic coins and so on.... they are all there for teachers to see and show their students. This was an unprecedented opportunity, especially for teachers who are fairly new to ancient coins... we have never been able to offer such a wonderful educational resource... ACE is indeed endebted to Wayne Sayles for his utmost generosity - such an opportunity is rare for teachers.
