The Perseus Project (last discussed in the January 1, 1999 Scout Report
) in April 2000 announced the second illustrated Web catalog produced in conjunction with the Museum of Fine Arts (MFA), Boston. This release is a catalog of over 750 ancient coins, added to the Perseus Coin Catalog. A straight list of the new additions may be accessed through the link provided. The coins will also appear along with coins from other collections, images, and encyclopedia entries returned via keyword searches using the Perseus Lookup Tool. Images of the coins are offered in three resolutions, the largest at 3060x2036 pixels. Catalog entries for the coins include material, denomination, mint, region, issuing authority, actual weight, diameter, and a description of the type and legend on either side of the coin.
