Abstract: A spherical homogeneous space $ G/H$ of a connected semisimple algebraic group $ G$ is called excellent if it is quasi-affine and its weight semigroup is generated by disjoint linear combinations of the fundamental weights of the group $ G$. All the excellent affine spherical homogeneous spaces are classified up to isomorphism.
