Lliria Hoard coins join OCRE

Nearly 6,000 Roman Imperial coins of the Lliria Hoard dating from Augustus to Commodus have been imported into's endpoint and are available for geographic and quantitative analysis in OCRE. The coins of this hoard are now housed in two museums: the Prehistory Museum of Valencia and the Archaeological Museum of Lliria. All of the coins have been weighed and photographed, and since they each have attested findspots, they may be used to enhance the geographic visualization of the coin types from the hoard and the characteristics associated with these types (e.g., denominations or rulers). See for example. The Prehistory Museum of Valencia is our first Spanish partner.
