For every group of coins, there is corresponding information about that group. This information can be classified as a whole with related labels: (1) coin type (can be identified if it is “obverse” or “reverse”); (2) metal used with the coin itself; and (3) bibliography for type. Each record of coins has given information such as: (1) catalogue number; (2) inventory number; (3) provinence (grid section); (4) die orientation; (5) size; (6) weight; (7) plate number and letter; (8) date of context; and (9) notes. In connection to this topic, there was an agreement which stated that all non-Roman coins should be called “Greek,” even those produced by non-Greek mints.
