Ancient Greek and Roman Numismatics // 2-11 July 2018, Athens

Course Outline

The Institute of Historical Research of the National Hellenic Research Foundation, one of the most important establishments for the research and study of the Greek history (ancient, medieval and modern) at international level, is pleased to announce the organisation of its second Summer School on Ancient Greek and Roman Numismatics, to take place at its premises in Athens, from 2 to 11 July 2018.

The ten-day intensive Summer School aims at familiarising those who have little or no background with the discipline of numismatics by offering a series of courses on methodology and various special themes. It will consist of lectures, practical sessions and visits to numismatic collections and archaeological sites in Attica.

The courses will provide a chronological survey of ancient Greek and Roman coinage (from the invention of coinage to the Roman period), combined with special lectures on numismatic methodology. Practical sessions will take place at the NHRF premises and in museums.

The Summer School on Numismatics is addressed to undergraduates, postgraduate students and PhD candidates in History, Archaeology and Art History, to historians and archaeologists, but also to individuals with a special interest in numismatics.

The instructors are researchers at the Institute of Historical Research of the National Hellenic Research Foundation, with contributions by other experts in Greek and Roman numismatics. Each year a visiting scholar will be invited to develop a special topic.

The number of participants is limited to 28. They will be selected by the Scientific Committee following a thorough assessment of the application and the CV of the candidates.

The course will be taught in English.
All participants will receive a certificate of participation.
