A typology of Ancient Greek Coinage
Online Greek Coinage (OGC) is a collaborative project to create a typology for ancient ‘Greek coinage’, as the discipline is defined by B.V. Head’s Historia Numorum (Oxford 1911). OGC is best conceived of as an umbrella for a number of different projects under construction around the world devoted to different regions and periods. This site has been created as part of the Ancient Culture as Relate Cultural Heritage (ARCH) project, a collaboration between the University of Oxford, the Bibliothèque nationale de France and the University of Valencia. It has been funded under the European Joint Programming Initiative Cultural Heritage (JPICH) by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC, UK), the Agence Nationale de Recherche (ANR, France) and the Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness (MINECO, Spain)
OGC currently aims to provide a high-level overview of the whole of Greek coinage, and as such is complementary to the various other Linked Open Data projects currently under way in the field that draw on the standards of the nomisma.org project. For information on those other projects and links to them and many other resources please see the relevant pages at the main OGC website.
