Hmmm, it does appear that the MER-RIC site is currently down. I have noticed that happen from time to time. Hopefully it will come up again soon.

There are no earlier versions on archive.orgs Wayback machine either, as far as I can see.

I was able to get some hits for MER-RIC on the Wayback Machine. I had to search by the homepage URL, http://www.ric.mom.fr/en/home. The most recent archive was from July 25th, 2018. Of course that means that the information on MER-RIC is frozen to that date, and from that archived page I am unsure if the entire database can be searched.

I have done some exploration of https://www.hisoma.mom.fr/numismatique/index.htm as well as https://www.hisoma.mom.fr/numismatique/Moneta/moneta.htm. The references to MER-RIC that I stumbled across were all broken links.   

When I get the time in the next few days I will email Sylviane Estiot and ask her if MER-RIC is temporarily down or if it is being redesigned/rebuilt. I will post any information that I find out.

MER-RIC is working again. I emailed Sylviane Estiot and she replied that the website had been down due to a technical difficulty.

It would be tragic if we lost MER-RIC.  I am so impressed with it, I am even updating the sold coin records (a bit at a time) with MER-RIC info.

Aurelian for example - https://www.forumancientcoins.com/catalog/roman-and-greek-coins.asp?vpar=743&pos=0&sold=1
