Project History
The project began in the 1990’s with a series of pilot studies on Flavian and Trajanic silver, particularly the provincial coinage of Caesarea in Cappadocia ( a city in a region of central Anatolia), and a study of early Severan denarii. It continued in the early 2000s with a larger scale project to investigate the silver coinages of the Julio-Claudian emperors (27 BC - AD 68).
 
In 2006 a major phase of the project began. This has involved the analysis of more than 1700 silver coins issued between the reigns of Nero (AD 54-68) and Commodus (AD 180-192).
