Rutgers Classics associate professor T. Corey Brennan, in collaboration with Rutgers University Libraries, has received a significant grant from Harvard’s Loeb Classical Library Foundation for 2013/4. The object? To bring fully into the digital realm the Ernst Badian Collection of Roman Republican Coins, which is housed in the Special Collections and University Archives of the Rutgers University Libraries. 

The collection is an extraordinary one. It numbers about 1250 Republican coins, augmented by a few dozen Greek and Roman Imperial issues. The Republican component of the Rutgers collection is remarkable for its comprehensiveness, historical value, and the fine condition of most of its individual pieces.
