The web-based database AFE for finds of ancient coins was developed by David Wigg-Wolf (Römisch-Germanische Kommission) and Karsten Tolle (Big Data Lab, Goethe University Frankfurt). Implementing the principles of LOUD and FAIR data, it employs the concepts and ontology of to facilitate communication with other numismatic facilities, and is further linked to a range of other resources such as Geonames for geodata or Zenon for bibliographic references, thus facilitating integration into the wider digital archaeological and historical landscape.
There are now four instances of AFE installed in Frankfurt, Heidelberg, Warsaw and Budapest, which can be queried through a common SPARQL endpoint, enabling searches across an extensive geographical area.
This paper will present the architecture and philosophy behind AFE, as well as discussing the potential offered by such an approach for digital coin find applications and studies.
