Project Description: 

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 Roman Provincial Coinage Online project is confined to the periods AD 96–192 and 249–254, but other periods will be put online in the future. The database contains information on 23,322 coin types, based on 97,883 specimens (30,289 of which have images).
