    I just discovered this. It seems pretty useful, so I thought I'd share it in case you haven't seen it before:

    Ancient Numismatics Link Hub

    My apologies if someone has already pointed this out in an earlier thread.

    Interesting. He even linked to a few of my pbase postings. There are a lot of good links listed. I hope it is maintained to delete dead ones.

    I opened that link and the first thing I noticed was the caveat that it was not a secure site. I am not sure what that means except that it scared the bejeezus out of me.

    Thank you - a lot of sites listed I had never seen previously. Excellent!

    Probably not a good idea to visit non secure sites, particularly if they are asking for email addresses/user names.

    a lot of sites are "not secure", it doesn't mean they are malicious. My site ( http://www.constantinethegreatcoins.com/ ) is also "not secure" due to a cert issue that is too involved for me to mess with right now.

    I spent quite some time going through the "Greek" and "Roman Provincial" sites and some have useful information for the average collector. The sites dealing with a special subject are more fun to explore and may draw the attention of more collectors but only fleetingly, unless they happen to be interested in the same subject.

    Looks very good. My website is listed.

    This simply means the site is not using SSL: all information transmitted to and from the site is in clear text and unencrypted so a hacker could conceivably intercept the content of the inquiry or response. There is little benefit for a hacker to make it worthwhile in a site like this.

    Thanks a lot for posting that links list. The author will know about this thread soon. I also have a links list on my website. There are shortcut links at the top for category subjects. I actively maintain this list and is up to date. Some are marked as offline, it's possible that some sites may come back later on in the future.

    I commented out the links that are currently offline. They may come back if the website authors fix the issues.

    I'd suggest not deleting but instead linking to the Wayback Machine view of a website which will likely be present (even if somewhat poorly rendered at times). https://archive.org/ is a great resource for the growing graveyard of web content.

    There are many, many sites that belong in the graveyard. I look foolish enough when people see what I said today let alone them seeing the versions I corrected 20 years ago. The Internet has a feature that I find better than books. Errors can be corrected easily. Wayback insures pages that lost all their value years ago will never be put to rest. This seems worse on the YouTube videos servicing my other hobby (photography). When a new camera comes out, a dozen 'experts' review it and point out a 'terrible' flaw in their mind. A month later, the camera manufacturer releases a firmware update correcting the problem but those negative reviews live for years never being updated because their authors have moved on to the next latest and greatest thing. Perhaps there is a compromise position. All websites could bear a statement that the site has not been updated for x years and reports have been received that out-dated information is included.

    At the bottom of all my web pages I include the line:

    "Last Updated June 24, 2020"

    Okay, wait a minute. Let me clarify. At the bottom of every one of my web pages that were last updated on June 24, 2020 I include the line:

    "Last Updated June 24, 2020"

    If they were last updated on a different date the line would be:

    "Last Updated [different date]" with the words (and brackets) "[different date]" replaced with the date that the page was last updated.

    But I'm guessing most of you figured that part out.
