The Pompeii Archaeological Research Project: Porta Stabia (PARP:PS) is bringing to light a largely forgotten corner of ancient Pompeii that has great potential for enlightening Pompeian and Roman history. Through the full range of archaeological inquiry – archaeological excavations, structural and artefactual analyses, and geophysical surveys – we are revealing the dynamic structural and social history of an entire Pompeian neighborhood.
Designed to help its users learn more about ancient Roman coinage. Its main feature is an extensive numismatic catalogue which has been compiled from information submitted by private collectors and dealers. This is clear and user-friendly: it may be browsed chronologically by decade for the Roman republic and by emperor or empress for the imperial period. The contents of the catalogue range from 326 BC to the time of the emperor Honorius (AD 393-423).
Coinage of the Roman Republic Online (CRRO) harnesses Linked Open Data to provide links across digital projects in Roman numismatics and beyond. At its launch CRRO provides access to six online collections containing over 20,000 specimens of Republican coinage.
A joint project of the American Numismatic Society and the Institute for the Study of the Ancient World, at New York University is creating a revolutionary new tool designed to help in the identification, cataloguing, and research of the rich and varied coinage of the Roman Empire. The project will ultimately record every published type of Roman Imperial Coinage from Augustus in 31 BC, until the death of Zeno in AD 491. This will create an easy to use digital corpus, with downloadable catalogue entries, incorporating almost 50,000 types of coins.
