Thrace Foundation Publisher issued the first volume of the catalogue Metal Vases and Utensils in the Vassil Bojkov Collection in English in 2016, written by Dr. Athanasios Sideris. In 2017 a book was translated into Bulgarian.
The catalogue, which is divided into five chapters, covers 146 articles from the 8th to the 1st century BC, produced in Asia Minor, Medium and Middle East, Continental and Island Greece, Southern Italy, Macedonia, Scythia, Thrace.
Each entry of the catalogue has a brief main heading, sequentially numbered, and a more descriptive secondary passage, always mentioning the material of which the artefact is made, as well as its inventory number in the collection. The body of the text of each entry is divided into three sections: the technical description – printed in slightly smaller characters – followed by the physical description of the artefact and the discussion. The 146 artefacts presented in this volume are illustrated by 388 pictures and 110 drawings, and their entries are supported by 111 pictures of comparable artefacts in other collections and museums.
Some 500 place names – of the find spots, the production centres, and the regions mentioned in the text – are shown on the three accompanying maps.
The catalogue concludes with three indexes (personal names, place names, general index), followed by a list of the 21 inscriptions and graffiti, a list of figures of the comparanda, and a concordance list, intended to facilitate the identification of the entries in the current volume with those in the previous publications of the Thrace Foundation.
