View Full Version : Diadumenian provincial website

Mar 14, 2007, 06:34 AM

I have spent some time creating a website solely devoted to the Roman Provincial coinage of Diadumenian. This has kindly been hosted by the vcoins team (thanks to them). I have tried to make it as comprenhensive as possible and given illustrations where I have them - though I am still missing a few. If you are interested in this area please check it out here;


It doesn't seem to appear in google seraches but apparently it takes a bit of time for these to filter through. Naturally now that I have announced it to the world so to speak I have noticed a couple of minor errors but hopefully I will get these ironed out quickly.

I hope you find it interesting

All the best

Generally, you need to give Google your URL the first time so they will know about you. You can do that here: http://www.google.com/addurl/

Hi Bill,

Thanks for the tip. I suspect it still takes a little while though - apparently is it links that really help with these sort of things so thank you very much for giving me a link too

All the best

Just an update to say I have added some articles to my site and am in the process of examing die relationships. I am not doing any interpretation - I'll leave that to someone better qualified - but I do hope to map out all the variations that exist.


Please feel free to have a look if you are interested

That's excellent Barry - many thanks for those.

If anyone has more lurking at the back of coin cabinets that are of interest please let me know - though I am pretty sure I have exhausted just about every on-line source and example that is available. There are a couple of the rarer cities that I do not have a single image for - this I would really like to rectify.

best regards

I found your site through Google, it was the 7th result.

Thanks Andreas

A search engine with obvious taste and impeccable capabilities :D

Seriously though I suspect it is so specialised that it would probably rate high - I can't imagine many sites would have that as the main search criteria.

all the best

One has to feel pity on this little guy, life ended so short through no lault of his own. A few others come to mind (ie Licinius Jr.), makes one grateful that it's sometime best to be a "nobody".
Nice site and coins, thanks for the link!
