Research Colloquium on Roman Republican Coinage in Dresden

May 15, 2014 – In connection with a research project on the interpretation of Roman Republican coins, which is funded by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft, the Münzkabinett of the Staatliche Kunstsammlungen Dresden and the Department of Ancient History at Technische Universität Dresden will be holding an international colloquium entitled “New Research on Roman Republican Coinage” from 19 to 21 June 2014. Forty years after the publication of Michael Crawford’s standard work “Roman Republican Coinage”, 15 speakers will be presenting their own recent research finds relating to this broad thematic spectrum. The aim is not only to explore the potential for future research on Roman Republican numismatics but also to consider how this might be made fruitful for allied disciplines.
