Don't think it has been announced here but a new (and apparently very rich from the few searches I've made) website have been launched lately.

This website forms the preliminary step to the revision of the Roman Imperial Coinage V.1. The database presented here applies to the reigns from 268 until 276 AD, that is, the reigns of Claudius Gothicus, Quintillus, Aurelian, Tacitus, Florianus, as well as the coinage of the princes of Palmyra, Vabalathus and Zenobia, issued by the imperial mint of Antioch. Thus, the period covers an important phase in the ‘3rd century crisis’ encountered by the Roman Empire, from the reign which symbolises its most critical point (Claudius Gothicus) to those which implemented the necessary takeover (Aurelian and his successors).
The additional information or corrections that we hope for from the scientific community will permit us to target a better, more comprehensive study for the corpus being prepared (RIC V.1/2), an objective which is particularly laborious to attain for this period of inflation in the coin production of money and of the diversification of the minting network.
The documentation assembled here is based chiefly on 12 main institutional collections of reference (Paris, London, Oxford, Vienna, Copenhagen, Milan, Budapest, Munich, Brussels, Cambridge, Berlin, New York) which have been exhaustively studied and digitized by agreement of their curators. They are hereby warmly thanked, for without them this work could never have been realised.
The database holds to date more than 4540 entries, based on 104,000 coins and more than 80,000 digital photographs.
The project has been financed since 2004 by CNRS programmes (Centre national de la recherche scientifique) : GDR, PICS Nummi et Cimelia, or ANR programmes (ANR MONetA) for which Sylviane Estiot is responsible.

Thank you so much for the link...the website is extensive. Like many collectors, I started with a collection of Claudius Gothicus and no longer add to it but have an interest in this period.
I know I will turning to it often.

I think this thread should be made sticky either here in Roman Coins or under Books and References.

I also suggest changing the title to "Pre-publication online version of new RIC V.1 for Claudius II, Quintillus, Aurelian, Tacitus, Florian, Vabalathus, and Zenobia".

That title I think better conveys the contents of this wonderful new resource, and the thread should be made sticky so that users will have no difficulty finding it!

In some publications this name is used to designate post-Aurelian reform (274) antoninians.

We really don't know the name for the radiate denomination. The Antoninianus is a modern term coined after Caracalla. Some wish to differentiate between the coinage before and after the monetary reforms of Aurelian and thus have coined the phrase to represent those. This is not universally adopted.

Logically, the denomination should be the "aurelianianus":

Antoninus, antoninianus, adding -ianus to the base Antonin-

Aurelianus, aurelianianus, adding -ianus to the base Aurelian-

An aurelianus would logically be a coin introduce by an Aurelius, not by an Aurelianus.

Years ago, there were some scholars who actually used "aurelianianus", but I don't know whether that form still persists!

Hi staff!
question:

If I have a Probus coin in radiate bust it is Aureliani or Antoniniani or Proboiani :)))

I refer to a Probus radiate as an antoninianus (shortened to ant.) but some others would refer to it as an aurelianus. There is no strict answer to your question as far as I am aware.

Yes, there will be a database including the thousands coins of Probus we collected in the institutional coin cabinets, private collections, coin hoards and sales, illustrated by their digital pics, but it is a long range work. There will be first the publication of the BNCMER XII.2, on the same model as BNCMER XII.1. Aurelian-Tacitus (S. Estiot, Paris-Strasbourg 2004), but which will publish not only the coins from Paris, Bibliothèque nationale together with a complete overview of the minting under Probus, but the collections in Vienna too, the most important collection for that period in the world.

Many thanks for your reply Sylviane.

So another great work awaits us. I am impatient to see all these coins that I did not know before.
I wish you all the best for your giant-project!

Simon

Amazing!  I immediately searched for the reduced Sestertii.  One has to search for an "as", as old catalogs list them.

This is a cool site.

So great, thank you for the share of the link.

And, last but not least, everything is in English AND in French : it is not so common to have such a ressource in perfectly understandable language  :angel:

Can hardly wait for part II. This is a truly amazing feat of scholarship.

Roman numismatic history will one day be divided thus:  BSE and ASE (Before Sylviane Estiot and After Sylviane Estiot).

If it as half as good as the work you did on Tacitus, it will be spectacular!
