ROMAN PROVINCIAL COINAGE ONLINE AT ASHMOLEAN MUSEUM

The Ashmolean Museum at Oxford University recently launched Roman
Provincial Coinage Online, one of the largest collections of ancient
coin images and related inscriptions.

"The aim of the Roman Provincial Coinage series is to produce a
standard typology of the provincial coinage of the Roman Empire
from its beginning in 44 BC to its end in AD 296/7. The current
Roman Provincial Coinage Online project is confined to the Antonine
period (AD 138192), but it is intended that it will form a model
for putting other periods online in the future.

The database is based on the ten most important and accessible
collections in the world, and on all published material. It comprises
one of the largest collections of images and related inscriptions
from the ancient world which is searchable by iconography, place,
and time.

The database contains information on 13,730 coin types, based on
46,725 specimens (9,061 of which have images)."
