Rob Sing's insight:

The BM's online collection search is a handy resource to prepare for, or perhaps even to replace, an actual consultation of the collection. There is a special research catalogue devoted to Roman Republican coinage - we can only hope a similiar facility one day appears online for Greek coins!

Royal Numismatic Society

Numismatics
Rob Sing's insight:

The top professional organisation for the study of coins of all eras in the UK. It provides a list of articles dealing with Greek Numismatics in the society's journal (one of the most important periodicals in numismatics - The Numismatic Chronicle).

Greek and Roman Materials

Rob Sing's insight:

Beloved by undergrads, I still use Perseus everyday. All the important classical texts are here, online and for free, nearly all with English translations. The word look up tool is great if you can't be bothered pulling the dictionary off the shelf.

Thesaurus Linguae Graecae

Thesaurus Linguae Graecae | Athenian Coins and Classics Resources | Scoop.it
Rob Sing's insight:

TLG is an indispensible resource for serious study in classics. Unfortunately, you do need to pay for a subscription if your academic institution doesn't have one (and why not?!) or you are on your own. Online is pretty much all the ancient Greek literature you will need, in the original Greek, though a lot of it is linked to the Perseus translation. Be aware that the Greek text, especially with some fragmentary texts, is not the most up-to-date version, but TLG searches will still give you a pretty good idea of how many times your particular word appears in Plato for instance, in what forms. Play around with the search functions, well worth your time.

Gold, Silver and Bronze - Medals, Banknotes and Tokens by fixed price and at auction.
Rob Sing's insight:

Numismatics is an unusual field in that huge amounts of material are not available to the general public or even professional researchers - millions of coins are held in private hands. Often, the only way for numismatists to actually know what is out there is when coins come up for sale, and then only through the images and descriptions provided by auction house catalogues, such as those produced by Baldwin's. Experts will then sometimes collect these auction catalogues as vital research resources. The Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge, has one of the most extensive collections of these catalogues in the world thanks to Professor Ted Buttrey's 30+ years of collecting.

BMCR is an open-access, peer-reviewed journal that has published timely reviews of current scholarship in all fields of classical studies since 1990.
Rob Sing's insight:
