Observing Coins to Learn about Greek Coin Production

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.
