Iconographies in Motion

Because of their coin images, Greek and Roman coins are among the most visual material culture of the ancient world. In this workshop, the conditions and mechanism for the change or continuation of coin iconographies in ancient coin series will be discussed against the backdrop of their function and meaning as communicative tool in society. In a diachronic perspective, phenomena stretching from the archaic period shall be confronted with developments during the Roman imperial period. At the same time, the conference will embrace studies on ancient coinage and coin iconographies from the central and eastern Mediterranean.

Organized within the project « Impressing Images. The Aesthetics of Coins During the Roman Empire » of the interdisciplinary collaborative research centre SFB 1391 Andere  sthetik.

Funded by the German Research Council (DFG).
