Online Coins of the Roman Empire

Online Coins of the Roman Empire (OCRE) is a joint project of the Amer­i­can Numis­mat­ic Soci­ety and the Insti­tute for the Study of the Ancient World at New York Uni­ver­si­ty to cre­ate a dig­i­tal cor­pus of the coinage of the Roman Empire.   
The project will ulti­mate­ly record every pub­lished type of Roman Impe­r­i­al Coinage, and will pro­vide links to exam­ples in major col­lec­tions pub­lished online. To date OCRE records all types from Augus­tus to Hadri­an (27 BC – AD 138), and links to exam­ples present in the ANS collection.
