Coin Types, Time Periods and People
Digging into the notes on this blog requires some introduction to the ancient history, people, and coins. This page provides some high level information and links to resources for learning more. Although the coin above is not ancient - it did seem appropriate to include on this page as it highlights a Roman Republican Aureus.
The Wikipedia is a great place to start for more information on many of the topics discussed in this blog. Coins of the 1st century BC Sulla have been a key theme of my collection, with a sub-collection of coins related to events from the Lifetime of Lucius Cornelius Sulla a key sub-theme. This page provides an introduction to the types of coins that are discussed in this blog.
