Where can one find the English translations of the Greek legends on RPC?

RPC volume VIII is now online! It covers all Roman provincial coinages issued during the reign of Philip (AD 244-249). It includes over 3,000 type descriptions and more than 22,000 coins, issued by 173 cities. The geographical scope ranges from Dacia to Egypt, though the bulk of the coinage was issued in Asia Minor.

Jerome Mairat (Oxford) and Marguerite Spoerri (Oxford) are the main authors and editors of this volume, with contributions by Michel Amandry (Paris), Kevin Butcher (Warwick), Jack Nurpetlian (Beirut), and Ulrike Peter (Berlin).

Corrections and additions will be incorporated in the printed volume planned for next year. Please submit feedback through RPC online.

RPC volume VII.2 is online!

RPC volume VII.2 covers all Roman provincial coinages issued in the reigns of Gordian I, Gordian II, Balbinus, Pupienus, and Gordian III (AD 238–244). It includes over 3,600 type descriptions and more than 25,000 coins, issued by 128 cities. The geographical scope ranges from Dacia to Egypt, without the province of Asia which was previously published in RPC VII,1 by Marguerite Spoerri.

Jerome Mairat (Oxford) and Marguerite Spoerri (Oxford) are the main authors and editors of this volume, with contributions by Michel Amandry (Paris), Roger Bland (Cambridge), Kevin Butcher (Warwick), Jack Nurpetlian (Beirut), and Ulrike Peter (Berlin).

Thank you, great resource! I wonder, what are the plans for the rest of the world (besides Asia Minor and Egypt) of volume VI? Nothing is on the website, not even 'in progress'.

Dear Board,

After a long lapse, I am finally back to give some RPC updates.  I was recently corresponding with Andrew Burnett and he had this to say about the latest scheduling saga:
   
"The current plan is to try and get the Asia part of V online (V.2) for the Warsaw conference next year; and the rest of VI also sometime in 2022. In terms of printed volumes, next year should see VII.2 (the rest of VII) and after that IV.4 (which is only Alexandria – enormous enough for a volume on its own). So we’re gradually getting there...!"

In a followup to this, he added:

"Maybe add that [RPC] VIII in print will be next after the others."

The time, therefore, is still not overripe for submitting new coins for possible inclusion in probably any of the RPC volumes mentioned above.  I know I have a lot of unpublished material waiting to be properly cataloged and submitted.  But none of the coins have to be new discoveries in terms of type or variety.  Even known ones that are rare or special in some way are more than welcome! 
     
It is a humbling, but nice feeling that some of the world's leading numismatists care and are truly interested in what we collectors and independent researchers collect and study.  Let's reciprocate by caring what they do and take a part in their historic work!

   
Best regards,

Mark Fox
