6th International Congress of Numismatics and Monetary History in Padua

[bsa_pro_ad_space id=4]

The 6th International Congress of Numismatics and Monetary History with the title “…per Mediterraneum. Coinage between North Africa and Western Europe during Antiquity and Post Antiquity”will take place from 27th-29th October 2022 in Padua, Palazzo Bo, Aula I. Nievo.

Connections between southern and northern shores of the Mediterranean Sea in Antiquity and Post Antiquity are the cornerstones of the European and African cultural history. The investigation of these relations has been carried out, and is still conducted, both from an historical and an archaeological point of view, starting from a plurality of sources. Among them, coinage increasingly emerges not only as a medium for the spread of iconographic and monetary patterns but also as a means of religious, military, commercial and, more in general, cultural ties.

This is the programm of the congress.

The 6th International Congress of Numismatics and Monetary History (Padua, 27th-29th October 2022) aims to examine the recent acquisitions of the numismatic research concerning these connections with particular regard to those involving the central and eastern parts of Africa bordering the Mediterranean Sea (between Egypt and Proconsularis / Mirs and Ifriqiya) and the area of western Europe centered on the Italian peninsula. A particular attention will be devoted to the results coming from archaeological excavations carried out by international teams operating in North Africa. Not only the Greek and Roman monetary traditions but also the Byzantine, Islamic and Western European ones will be addressed as well as the history of the numismatic studies related to the connections between the two areas considered.

The Congress is organized by the University of Padua in the year which marks the 800th anniversary of its birth. The same institution boasts a long tradition in numismatic studies and plays an active role in the development of the cultural relations between the two shores of the Mediterranean Sea.
