The project will ultimately record every
published type of Roman Imperial Coinage, and will provide links to
examples in major
collections published online. To date OCRE
records all types from Augustus to Hadrian (27 BC – AD 138), and links
present in the ANS collection.

OCRE is a Numishare tool based on the stable numismatic identities established by the Nomisma project.
The primary focus of the project is notice and comment on open access material relating to the ancient world, but I will also include other kinds of networked information as it comes available.
The ancient world is conceived here as it is at the Institute for the Study of the Ancient World at New York University, my academic home at the time AWOL was launched. That is, from the Pillars of Hercules to the Pacific, from the beginnings of human habitation to the late antique / early Islamic period.
