RPC Question?

(1/3) > >>

Charles M:
For example when an attribution reads "RPC 3396", what book exactly is being referred to?  Thanks.

For the answer just click on those letters RPC in my message or your own!

Hi Charles,

Numiswiki is an exceptional resource. Per Curtis's note above, words which are the names of articles will be hyperlinked so you can simply click on them and it will take you to the relevant page. I use numiswiki all the time.

RPC (Roman Provincial Coinage) is a series of volumes dealing with provincial coinage. It is the standard reference for most provincial coinage but each volume is quite expensive so it is not accessible to many collectors. I do not currently own any volumes myself.


You can usually tell which volume is meant, by the emperor it is referring to.
Early emperors, Augustus, Tiberius, Caligula, Claudius, Nero etc = RPC I
The Flavians, Vespasian, Titus, Domitian etc. = RPC II
Trajan, Nerva, Hadrian and families = RPC III
Gordian III and family = RPC VII (covers Asia only)

Joe Sermarini:
Notice that RPC I, RPC II, RPC III, and RPC VII are also links.  Also RPC online. 

The RPC page was missing RPC III.  Since it is a Wiki, anyone could have updated it.  Unfortunately, it is mostly me that does that.
