The initial suggestions here, including the work by Sear, are certainly valuable.  I would add Harold Mattingly's Roman Coins, initially published in 1928 (my copy was reprinted in 1967).


For an introduction to collecting ancients, I have learned from Wayne Sayles' books; I believe he has six, including one on fakes.  Also enjoyable for anyone, especially new collectors, is Collecting Ancient Coins: A Guided Tour Featuring 25 Significant Types written by Paul Rynearson and published by Whitman.
