Nick Molinari, the editor of KOINON: The International Journal of Classical Numismatic Studies, has just today put out a call (at two other ancients/medieval forums) for papers for volume 2. Since Nick doesn't post here, I wanted to relay this to my Coin Community Family.

I strongly encourage members of this CCF board to consider submitting essays. I know of one of our group who is definitely committed to the idea and is already at work. Others should, in my opinion, entertain the idea. There is such a treasure trove of posts here, a number of which could be the basis of an article. Just saying: Comparative typographical elements on medieval coinage (such as comparing interpretations of the letter "A" or "S") - great potential article there! Comparative Indo-Sassanian typologies - now we're talkin'! (Got to see those reference numbers published and canonized!)

The editorial advisory board, which does the blind jurying of entries, includes some important individuals in the world of ancient numismatics: David Sear, Victor Clark, etc.

Archaeopress is the publisher: http://www.archaeopress.com/Archaeo...=11+Dec+2017

(If you scan down that page you'll spot the purple cover of KOINON, volume one)

Here is Nick's call - I hope some of you will consider heeding it:


"KOINON 2019 Call for Papers

Dear Friends,

Please see the links below for the formal Call for Papers for KOINON 2019, as well as the new style guide. We are switching to a modified Harvard style throughout, which should make things much easier and more efficient for writers, readers, and editors.

Call: https://www.academia.edu/37626661/K..._Papers_2019

Style Guide: https://www.academia.edu/37595182/K...ISSION_GUIDE

I am happy to discuss via email any ideas you might have. I also encourage the submission of new varieties (a cataloging task I might push off to another editor Grin). There are three possible outcomes for papers: declined, revise and resubmit, or accept (in which case there are only minor revisions needed).

I am happy to take a glance and offer feedback on an essay before formal submission.

Thanks for considering,

Nick"

For those of you that don't already know Bob has an outstanding article in Volume one on Parthian Silver Fraction coinage, there are also many other excellent articles.

Bob, do you know what the cost is for a subscription?

Looks like the deadline is the 1st of April, 2019 (no foolin'). Thanks for sending this out Bob. Despite your flattery, I'm not sure that I've done anything worth adding to the literature, but I will definitely think about it.

Since it's apparently going to be an annual publication, Ron, I don't think there will be subscriptions. And note: definitely cheaper to purchase directly from Archaeopress than other distributors like Amazon.

No, Paul.


Also, everyone: each issue will have a section devoted to previously unpublished types and/or varieties. I know that a number of you have come across interesting variants, unique retrogrades, etc. Those would qualify. For those who may have briefly owned, but then flipped, such coins, I'm pretty sure I recall Nick saying, in another forum, that a submitted coin doesn't need to currently be in your possession - although that's a point that should be confirmed with him. I'm pleased to have contributed an apparently unique Elymaean tet to that section in volume one.
