University of Marburg joins Nomisma

The latest member of the German NUMiD consortium of university coin collections has been integrated into the Linked Ancient World Data Cloud: The Numismatic Collection of the Archaeological Seminar of the Philipps-Universit├Ąt Marburg. The University of Marburg's contribution of 23 coins spans four type corpora in the Roman and Hellenistic domains: OCRE, CRRO, PELLA, and Seleucid Coins Online.

SCO 1429 is a great example of the research value of these projects and the possibilities that arise as a result of collaboration between large and small numismatic collections. There are are two physical specimens of this coin type: one housed at the ANS and the other in Marburg. Together (and with other eventual additions), these specimens will help form a more complete picture of this typology by facilitating more accurate analyses of measurements and geographical distribution.
