Coins of particular
interest. I used to have a "Coin of the Month" feature
on my previous site. These were a mix of Roman and Greek
Symbols on Ancient Coins - The
night sky was so much more a part of the lives of
ancient people than it today. A short essay on the topic
that I wrote at the turn of the milllenium.
Coins for Education - Educational not-for-profit
with the aim of getting uncleaned Roman coins into the
hands of students. I worked with them for many years and
visited Latin classes at White
Station High School in Memphis.
- A boat load full of informational/educational
sites about ancient coins.
- The premier vendor market for ancient coin sales

Biddr, and Numisbids
- These sites contain many important upcoming auctions.
There is a lot of overlap, but each does have some that do
not appear on the other. Just do a search for your
collecting interest and it will search all of the auctions.
I do not recommend using "Trajan" as a keyword!
