Grinnell College Campus Collections

Ancient Coins
A collection of Roman coins dating from 225 BCE to 383 CE. These coins were originally identified and catalogued by Danja Foss ’91, with revisions by Sarah Hubbard ’17 and Monessa Cummins, Associate Professor of Classics. Sarah Hubbard photographed the coins for use in this database. Descriptions of Republican coins are based on those of the British Museum’s online database, Roman Republican Coins, which is based on the work of M. H. Crawford, Roman Republican Coinage (1974). Descriptions of imperial coins are based on those of the multi-volume reference work, Roman Imperial Coinage (1923–94), which was begun by Harold Mattingly and Edward Allen Sydenham, and continues to be revised today. This database exists because of the indispensable expertise of the staff of Burling Library.
