Thanks to Joe's generosity my web-site 'Historia' can now be found at http://www.forumancientcoins.com/historia/
The site displays my collection of ancient coins from all areas: Greece, Rome, Medieval, Islamic, India and China, with a potted history of each reign or period. There are also a few articles on various ancient themes.

The original site will remain and be updated in case anyone has it book-marked.

Enjoy!

A really great web site!  The Roman history is old hat for me, but I particularly enjoyed the coins and history of India, and Islamic societies.  This is definitely worth bookmarking.  The article about an overweight Florain antoninianus with XI in exerge is very interesting too.

What's more, it runs like greased lightning.  OK, I have a G5 and cable connection, but not everything runs so smoothly.  Pat L.

Hi Peter!

Today I have detected your site! Very nice indeed! So should be each site about coins: Not only the coins itself but the background too! Congrats!

Best regards

Peter,

Thanks for your kind words.

The menu I use comes from this site: http://www.apycom.com/
The version I use originally came free I think, although now it seems to be restricted to a 30 day free trial.

I have recently added an 'Antiquities' page to my 'Historia' web-site. Most items are interesting if modest, although there are some quite nice ones including an Egyptian boatman recently acquired from Forum.

Also over the last few months I have added a 'Roman imitatives' section.

Both these new sections can be accessed from the 'NEW' links at the bottom of the home page - address below.

I have continued to add coins to the site. There are now over 600 shown of which almost 400 are Roman.

'Historia' has been running on Forum now for 8 years. Time flies!

I have recently added a small section on 17th-18th century medallions (or more correctly medals). Not ancient, but they look good and the history is interesting. Accessible from the home page below. Take a look.

I have also re-photographed all the coins on the site -some 700 coins. There is now a consistent look to them.

Rather annoyingly, the Java toolbar now causes a 'do you want to run?' message to appear when you first open the home page. It makes it appear that there is something to worry about. However, if you tick the appropriate box, this need happen only once.

Well, the Java toolbar no longer worked on my computer, so I guessed it wouldn’t on other peoples either. So I have found a more up to date toolbar which seems to work fine, even on an Android tablet. It mean putting the code on all the major pages rather than having the code in one place, controlling a ‘frame’, but an advantage is the URLs of each individual page are no longer hidden.

I have added quite a bit to the site over the years. In the Roman section http://forumancientcoins.com/historia/roman_switchboard.htm there 49 Republican coins, 377 Imperial coins of 106 emperors (including rare ones such as Gordian I and II, Pertinax, Pecennius Niger and Laelianus). Also accessible from this page is this one on Roman imitatives http://forumancientcoins.com/historia/imitative.htm

 I have added to the lists of rulers, kings and emperors with a complete list of Roman Republican moneyers. http://forumancientcoins.com/historia/republic_gen.htm
One page that has been hidden away is an interactive page on Late Roman mints and mint marks. http://forumancientcoins.com/historia/mints/mints.htm
Anyway, the main page address is below. Enjoy.

The new pages look fantastic. I like the way you've linked with the green buttons from the moneyers list to the coins in each instance. The coin photographs are very consistent and tremendously clear. This is a terrific way to present a collection. Some of the linked resources are also great e.g. the page you link to on the fineness of silver coins and weights and measures.

I'm supportive of your avoiding Java for the main page addresses. So much cleaner and easier to refer to - I've just posted some links to individual pages on another list which I could not otherwise have done. And it'll work on all PCs, Mac and phone operating systems.

I have a suggestion. You might want to add a small Historia logo on each page to remind visitors where they are.

Some time ago (years ago in fact) I put on my website a timeline of late Roman coinage. This was done on a Excel spreadsheet, which could be downloaded.

I have now updated this to include the whole Imperial period.  The late Roman period is notoriously difficult to interpret so to make things (a little bit) clearer I have used the denominations used  by Sear in Roman Coins and their Values, though this is just as speculative as any other system.

I have also created a timeline for Roman Republican coinage. This is mainly based on Crawford. I must say, until I started this I didn’t realise just  how complicated Republican coinage was.

A time line of the Roman emperors remains unchanged.

I have also provided PDFs of those three spreadsheets. This is for those that can’t view Excel spreadsheets.  Of course the PDFs are separate pages so you can’t move along the time line as you can on a spreadsheet. The PDFs also make it easier to print than it is from a spreadsheet. I have printed the pages of each timeline and taped them together in a fan-fold.

All these  files can be downloaded here http://forumancientcoins.com/historia/articles.htm
