By the highlighting of F&L Table 2 with eleven different colours it is seen that there are eleven different denominations by weight/size. These are the ten different denominations recognized by F&L from their Graph 1, together with the single data point for the Athena denomination.
Rather than piecemeal weight reduction for coins with the same obverse, F&L Table 2 shows denominational recognition by weights/sizes. The table also gives evidence against denominational marking by obverse types.
For example, the Zeus-Ammon/double-eagle coins, that are hypothetically all stated to be the same denomination with reduced weights, are placed in the listing of F&L's Table of Hoards at the top of each sub-series 6a to 7b. After graphing of the list, these coins appear in three different weight/size positions and, by classical determinations, these three vertical positions are three different denominations of the Zeus-Ammon/double-eagle coins (i.e., not all the same denomination). In addition, and contrary to denominational indication by obverse types, in F&L Table 2 five of the eleven rows show coins of the same denomination (same weight/size) with different obverses (see weights of 30, 17-20, 15, 6-7, and 4-5 g).
This table is all in accord with the classical view that denominations are determined by weight/size and not by obverse types. The graphing of the list of data from the “Table of Hoards”, that is said to “establish the relative chronology of the series”, results in a pattern (F&L Table 2) that fits determination of denominations by weight/size: It should be concluded that the hypothesis of obverse marking and piecemeal weight reduction can not be supported by F&L Table 2.
Nevertheless, F&L present the additional Table 3 “[that] is a reorganized version of Table 2, [by again] using obverse types as the main criterion”. Click F&L ANALYSIS (below) to compare this new F&L Table 3 with F&L Table 2.
