Contenuti: Specific title: Ancient coinage in the Western Mediterranean & Northwestern Provinces

The course will take into account coinage from the Western Mediterranean and from the North-Western Provinces with particular focus on coin finds. It covers issues over time from the Archaic period to Late Antiquity and the Early Medieval period, and in some instances beyond.
Sessions are dedicated to principles of ancient coinage, and how through their study in the context of other sources coins can be explored as a primary source. Case studies from many sites will be discussed, such as coins from hoards, single finds, sanctuaries, funerary contexts etc.
The approach of the course is based on the use of the coin as a source along with other sources both textual (ancient authors and inscriptions) and material (archaeological contexts and non-numismatic objects and finds).
Attivita' di apprendimento previste e metodologie di insegnamento: The course is interactive, and includes debates and student-led sessions.
As well as studying coinage trough lectures, aural presentations and written pieces, students will have the opportunity to handle original coins and to gain expertise in its cataloguing.
Exam preparations will be based on handouts and bibliography provided to the students by the course tutor, and on the students’ notes.
Eventuali indicazioni sui materiali di studio: Further bibliography as provided throughout the course.
