Joseph Hilarius von Eckhel (1737-1798). Doctrina Nvmorvm Vetervm conscripta a Iosepho Eckhel. Leipzig: T.O. Weigel, 1826 (1st edition 1792-1798).
Abbot Eckhel is called the “father of ancient numismatics,” because his 8-volume work, Doctrina numorum veterum, laid out a system for classifying coins by region, chronology, and type that became standard for the field. Before its publication, he had served as director of the imperial coin cabinet in Vienna, and had studied collections in Bologna, Rome, and Florence as well.
