The minting activity under Carthaginian authority is a complex, challenging phenomenon which remains far from being fully understood. It is nevertheless a key topic to understand the major economic and social transformations in the central Mediterranean during the 4th and 3rd centuries BC. Although epigraphical and historical factors generally contribute to the difficult study of Punic issues, the distribution of coins from Carthage as well as data about them play a major role in our lack of responses on the topic. The purpose of the Carthaginian coin finds database is to geolocate and chronolocate all known Greek coin finds from Carthage, to increase both their visibility and contextual understanding. The collaborative and multilingual online platform Dedalo allows presenting coin data in many forms. This includes a map of finds, but also bibliographies related to both the coin find and the coin type reported by the finders, as well as alternative coin type interpretations.
