The team of FORVM ANTIKE cordially invites all interested to attend the winter term lecture series.

The lecture series FORVM ANTIKE came into being in the winter term 2013 as a cooperation between the Department of Ancient History and the Department of Numismatics of the Universitz of Vienna as successor of CONGIARIVM. As speakers, experts in the fields of Ancient History, Epigraphy, Papyrology, Etruscology and Numismatics from all around the world are invited. Colleagues from the participating institutes in Vienna have so far constituted the main audience of FORVM ANTIKE.

The COVID-19-pandemic has led to the adoption of a new online format for the lectures, allowing the organisers to reach a broader and more international audience.

The lectures are now organised by the Department of Ancient History, the Department of Numismatics and the Department of Byzantine Studies, with the support of the Forschungsschwerpunkt Kulturen des euromediterranen Raums und Altertumswissenschaften.
