Money Talks | How to Read Latin on Coins

with Lucia Carbone

March 10, 2018  | 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm
$30 for members / $50 for nonmembers

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.

Money Talks: Numismatic Conversations is supported by an ANS endowment fund generously given in honor of Dr. Vladimir Clain-Stefanelli and Mrs. Elvira Clain-Stefanelli.

Book Launch with Dr. William Metcalf

Please join us on December 6 at 5:30 for a book launch and reception for The Later Republican Cistophori by William Metcalf. This event is free, and books will be available for signing for the special price of $40. The book catalogs and illustrates some 523 cistophori and fractions from the mints of Ephesus, Pergamum, Tralles, and Apameia, as well as the “ATPA” series and related issues. A detailed commentary discusses the Roman magistrates and the Greek signers of their coinages as well as well as the metrology and fineness of the cistophori. This work also includes cistophori from the collection of Richard B. Witschonke.

Money Talks, Jonathan Kagan and David Hill

Numismatic Book Collecting
Jonathan Kagan & David Hill
November 18, 2017 | 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm
$30 for members / $50 for nonmembers

In the age of the internet, most older books, including numismatic books, are available online thanks to initiatives of the Bibliothèque de France, the Newman Numismatic Portal and many other platforms. What does this mean for collectors of physical books and other historical records? Jonathan Kagan, who has collected rare numismatic books for the last 40 years, and David Hill, archivist and librarian for the ANS, will examine the notion of collectible books and manuscripts and consider their place in private and public collections. Examples from the Kagan and ANS Libraries will be at hand for inspection.


Please RSVP to Emma Pratte at or 212-571-4470, ext. 117.
