1. There's a link (right near the top of the main page) to the new major paper on Ptolemaic bronze coin metrology just published in AJN
25 (2013 dated volume, published in Spring

2. The coin photos page also has a few updates with improved descriptions and some new coin types
, including the 2nd known specimen of a late issue of Tyre with a 'kausia
' (hat) under the club mintmark
