On Saturday, December 8, Join Alex Conison, PhD on the Ancient Roman wine trade and senior brand manager for Jose Cuervo USA, and MJ Mcamara, PhD candidate in classics and NYC chef, with our Deputy Director Gilles Bransbourg for an edible history of ancient Rome. Come and enjoy food prepared via ancient Roman recipes, paired with the wine produced by ancient techniques, and see the coins that would have paid for it all.

Mary Jean McNamara is currently taking her final exams for a Ph.D. in Classics at CUNY’s Graduate Center. Her M.A. thesis focused on citizenship grants in ancient Athens. Her current focus involves ethnic identity and citizenship. Prior to attending graduate school, Mary Jean worked as a chef in New York City restaurants including San Domenico, the Spotted Pig, and Blue Water Grill. Her interest in the food of ancient Greece and Rome centers on the production and trade of garum, the ubiquitous fish sauce that served as an essential ingredient in both savory and sweet preparations. 

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