ARCH (Ancient Coinage as Related Cultural Heritage) is a collaborative project between CSAD at the University of Oxford, the Bibliothèque nationale de France (BnF) in Paris and the Department of Archaeology at the University of Valencia, to create an online portal for Greek coinage. It will establish, for the first time, an overarching platform for the study, curation, archiving and preservation of the monetary heritage of the pre-Roman world. Using the newly developed nomisma.org knowledge organisation system, ARCH will build a unified portal across multiple online typological resources currently under development, as well as designing a skeleton typology for the whole of the remainder of Greek coinage.
The ARCH project uses Linked Open Data technology and the standards of the nomisma.org project to establish an overarching portal for the study, curation, archiving and preservation of the monetary heritage of the ancient world – the Greek oikoumene. It offers a high-level overview of all the coin types traditionally subsumed within the discipline of ‘Greek’ numismatics, from the 7th to the 1st century BC.
