The UCD Classical Museum includes several thousand coins from the ancient Mediterranean amongst its holdings. This extensive numismatic collection can be traced back to the initial interest of the museum’s founder, Prof. Henry Browne S.J., in the role that coins could play in educating about the Classical world. Building upon several cataloguing projects that took place over the course of the twentieth century, recent work in the museum has focused on creating a digital database of its Roman Republican coinage. This information has also been exported into a Linked Open Data format, making the data available online and placing UCD at the forefront of a new wave of digital dissemination of numismatic research.
