Corpus Nummorum Online is an open access numismatic web portal that aims to collect and
present comprehensive regional datasets of Greek and Roman provincial coinage and offers
a research tool for their processing and analysis. The material is arranged by regions and
mints, as well as by chronology and types. At present, you can browse through and search
for coins and coin types minted in Moesia Inferior, Thrace, Mysia, and the Troad.
Our choice for the September 2020 COM fell on Assos, an Aeolic Greek city in the southern Troad founded from Methymna. Although the city’s importance was not always great, its harbour drove trade from antiquity till the late 19th century, while its exceptionally well preserved fortifications and theatre continue to attract tourists from all over the world.
