This will be the first of a set of programs within the “ Money Talks: Numismatic Conversations” series, in which ANS staff will teach how to read and understand foreign inscriptions on coins, ancient and modern. Dr. Carbone will give a basic introduction to Latin as a language and how it is used on coins. Although the focus will be on Latin on Roman coins, she will also look at Medieval, Modern and US coins. Resources for interpreting abbreviations and other legends for Latin will also be discussed. No prior knowledge of Latin is required.
