126 BnF coins integrated into Antigonid Coins Online

BnF Antigonid Coins Online

One hundred twenty-six coins from the Bibliothèque nationale de France, recently cataloged by Julien Olivier, have been incorporated into the newly-released Antigonid Coins Online (AGCO), which so far includes the coinage of Demetrius Poliorcetes. Roughly a dozen of these coins were already accessible through AGCO upon its launch since a handful of the coins of Demetrius are cross-linked with posthumous issues in the name of Alexander the Great in PELLA (related specimens are displayed in Numishare when they link directly to a type URI or implied to be the same via skos:exactMatch).

There are now 433 total specimens connected to the 182 types of Demetrius Poliorcetes. Two-thirds of the types are connected to at least one physical specimens, and about 40% (77 types) of the corpus links to at least one photographed coin. This number will grow, as the majority of the ANS’ coins of Demetrius have not been photographed yet.
