I'd like to call attention to this work of scholarship:

"AUTHENTICITY OF ROMAN IMPERIAL AGE SILVER COINS USING NON-DESTRUCTIVE
ARCHAEOMETRIC TECHNIQUES

"A THESIS SUBMITTED TO THE GRADUATE SCHOOL OF NATURAL AND APPLIED SCIENCES
OF MIDDLE EAST TECHNICAL UNIVERSITY

"BY MAHMUT AYDIN"

pdf link: http://etd.lib.metu.edu.tr/upload/1...17/index.pdf

This pdf is 200 pages, an exhaustive study with regard to the composition of Roman Imperial coins from Augustus to Gordian III found in two museum collections. It's for the most part certainly not what you'd call light reading, but it's not excessively technical and actually pretty well illustrated. Besides the test results, the author also provides an overview of counterfeiting techniques. The data compiled allows for identification of markers that can show specimens to be fakes, and provides a basis for validating coins from this period once they've been analyzed via XRF.

Had to share this:

http://scroll.in/article/722369/the...20th-century

Century-by-century map of India to show all major kingdoms from 100 BC until the 1500s. It's missing a few, but an excellent resource.

A great guide to Owl Tetradrachms...

http://athenianowlcoins.reidgold.com/

Not sure if it has been posted, I know it would be a heck of a job but perhaps all the links could be compiled into an easy to read thread with them categorised.

I just picked up Zeljko Demo's "Ostrogothic Coinage from Collections in Croatia, Slovenia, and Bosnia & Herzegovina". It is a little difficult to find, but I was able to get one from an Austrian bookseller via ABE.

I know that we don't have too many coins from the Gepids posted on CCF, but I will include mine when I'm fully certain of the attribution.

Two fascinating websites on Roman coin hoards found in Great Britain:

http://www.aoti76.dsl.pipex.com/hoa...n_hoards.htm

(As well as terrific reading, the second one's illustrated, too)

A worthwhile, if limited, webpage on contemporary ("barbarous" if you prefer) counterfeits of Roman coinage, going back to the time of the Republic:

http://augustuscoins.com/ed/imit/

Plus an outstanding list of resources (both books & websites) on this topic:

Some years ago I gave a talk to the local ancient coin club in which I presented info on websites for research and purchasing. I divided the presentation into sections: General Research, Greek, Roman, Byzantine, Nonclassical, Judaean, English (Hammered), Forgeries and Counterfeits, Noteworthy University and Museum Sites, Noteworthy Retail Sites, Noteworthy Antiquity Dealers, Noteworthy Organizations, and Noteworthy Blogs.

Here are the sites that I believe are still online from the Roman section:

Over the course of the winter months I put together a reference guide that I thought might be helpful to new and experienced collectors alike. I am not a writer which can be seen by the sloppiness of the format, but the information is good and should be helpful. I'm working on part two now which I promise will look more professional. I have posted the link here for the next few days to give you all a chance to see it. I'll be moving it to the Books, downloads and website section late. Please try and not be too harsh on my lack of writing skills, it was much harder than I thought.

Also if you have any idea of what you would like to see in part two, let me know.

A finished copy of the guide is in the process of being edited and reformatted and will be posted once completed. Until than I hope you will enjoy this rough draft.
