Badian Roman Coins
The Roman Coins portal is a collaborative effort to bring fully into the digital realm Rutgers' Ernst Badian Collection of Roman Republican Coins, and to contextualize its 1200+ items in such a way that a broad section of the public can readily understand general patterns of development in Roman money in its first 250 years and to study the many individual objects for this period that hold historic, economic or artistic interest. These coins form one of the largest collections of its type in North America and the Coins portal provides comprehensive digital access for study and teaching. The coins, with their rich multidimensional images and metadata incorporating the notes of Badian will be used in courses in classics, history, art history and economics, enabling students and faculty to contribute stories that will build a rich corpus of numismatic scholarship.
