Welcome to ancient coin museum
Ancient Coin Museum is a non-profit website dedicated to assisting research and providing detailed historical biographies and information regarding ancient coins (particularly Roman) in general.
Here you will find a variety of biographies related to Greek/Macedonian history, Enemies of Rome (Barbarian Tribes) and an extensive listing of Roman Imperators and Emperors with corresponding coins. In addition there are select coinages highlighted from many geographical areas in the ancient Greek world.
Please peruse and enjoy!
The biographies contained are adapted from both ancient and secondary sources. Those of the Roman emperors are adapted primarily from the works of a variety of ancients and the excellent work of Michael Grant, David Vagi, and by the authors and editors of the Roman Imperial Coinage. Please see the bibliography link for a full listing of works used and consulted for this website.
Special Thanks To
The site itself owes its creation to the upcoming computer guru, Brandon Janowski. A huge thank you to Brandon for his many hours of dedicated work to my pet project. Without you, this website would not exist. Thanks, Brandon!***All photos of coinage are from the collection of the owner of the site unless otherwise stated and have the appropriate permissions for use on this site.***
