As part of MeBic project (the upload of Milan Coin Cabinet collections) a significant set of coins was selected to improve the website. This is a group of ancient coins from the Lagioia collection, mainly issues of local Apulian mints and other local mints; the collection has been kept in the Milan Coin Cabinet for a long time, but has not yet been fully and systematically studied. It includes ca. 200 coins that offer interesting clues for an analysis of both the contents of the collection and its history: the set helps to reconsider some issues concerning the horizon of circulation of some local bronze issues in Apulian area, and also to looking into the relationship with some western Greek region coinages. Lastly, it offers a chance to better understand the first owners’ various collecting interests.
