Numismatics: a primary source of historical knowledge

Tuesday, February 5, 2013

“Η Νομισματική: πρωτογενής πηγή ιστορικής γνώσης”

Lecture given by Ioannis Touratsoglou (Honorary director of the Numismatic Museum, Athens), in the framework of the Numismatic Meetings.

The Numismatic meetings are a joint organization of the University of Athens, the Belgian School at Athens and the French School at Athens. The aim of the seminar is to demonstrate the strength of the numismatic research in Greece by pointing out the links and interactions of the discipline with history and archaeology. Every source and method related to numismatics will keep the attention of the seminar: technical aspects, metrology, iconography, monetary, financial and economic history.

The Greek and overseas scholars are invited to deliver a one-hour conference presenting the “what’s new” in numismatics, their latest studies and important new discoveries in the field. A session of discussion and questions will follow the conference.
