When browsing through the internet I came across a reference to the web-site http://www.rcsenior.com/ as a place for Indo-Scythian coinage (I wonder given the name in the address). The website is not online now. Does anyone know if the web project still exists under a different address? I failed to find it. It would be great to see - I collect Indian coins and have several Azes coins which I would like to properly attribute while I cannot purchase the books by R. Senior at the moment.

With a little help from Google I found this information.

R. C. Senior -- amassed the largest and most comprehensive collection of this Indo-Scythic and Indo-Parthian coins ever made and it contains over 90% of all the known types. Notably, the collection also contains numerous Parthian coins and eastern issues with Parthian countermarks. His collection is now housed in the Ashmolean Museum's Heberden Coin Room.

Thank you Sir for the interesting links.

It looks like the collection has not been put in any kind of an online database by the museum which is a pity. Perhaps the web site http://www.rcsenior.com/ cannot be reopened as the museum now holds the rights for the coins and information. Will have to look for the R. Senior's catalog and maybe for some scans or abstracts from it.
