Arslan – dal titolo “Note, riflessioni e problematiche inerenti alla monetazione di Rhegion dal IV al I sec. a.C., nel quadro dei suoi rapporti con Roma, e delle realtà politiche, economiche e culturali del mondo magnogreco” – che aggiunge nuove considerazioni e stimoli in keeping with ulteriori approfondimenti e ricerche.
