FIRST MEETING OF THE ROMAN PROVINCIAL COINAGE PROJECT AT THE ASHMOLEAN MUSEUM
On Friday 25th July, the first general meeting on the Roman Provincial Coinage Project was held at the Heberden Coin Room of the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford. Editors, authors and contributors to all the forthcoming volumes (from III to X) were present: A. Burnett, D. Calomino and R. Wilkinson (London), M. Amandry and A. Hostein (Paris), C. Howgego, V. Heuchert, J. Mairat and B. Hellings (Oxford), K. Butcher and M. Spoerri (Warwick), B. Metcalf (Yale), S. Kremydi (Athens). The meeting was an opportunity to discuss works in progress and plans for publication and funding. An important theme was the future of on-line databases, to follow the model of the Oxford's RPC 4 website. The RPC project, which started in 1992, will produce the first standard typology of the provincial coinage in 10 volumes. Three volumes and three supplements have been published so far; the next to come will be RPC 3 (Nerva-Hadrian) and 9 (Decius-Uranius Antoninus).
