Observing Coins to Learn about Greek Coin Production

Saturday, September 25
1:00 pm ET

Dr. Caroline Carrier (École normale supérieure de Lyon, caroline.carrier@ens-lyon.fr), Jérémy Artru (Orléans University, jeremy.artru@univ-orleans.fr) and Dr. Thomas Faucher (Centre d’Études Alexandrines, thomas.faucher@cea.com.eg) will present an ongoing project on Greek coins with observable traces, including overstrikes, brockages, and cracked flans. This study seeks to assess which process created these traces and what they reveal about coin production. The speakers invite ANS members to send them pictures of coins with intriguing traces. Assessment of these examples will be included in the discussion following the presentation. Reach out to the speakers at their emails listed above. 

A link will be sent to all active members on the morning of the talk. To make sure you are on the list, contact Austin Goodwin Andrews at membership@numismatics.org. This lecture will be recorded and uploaded to YouTube for later viewing.
