Description

Numismatics, the study of coinage, is the study of something which touches on a vary wide variety of topics of importance for any premodern society in which coinage is produced. Coins are source documents for their societies; they are also reflections on the economies, industrial production, iconography, technical skill, social organization, chronology, and governmental control of a given society. The session has two very different papers: the first covers aspects of late-antique / early medieval coinage in Transcaucasia, on the Sasanian/Byzantine frontier; the second looks at aspects of coinage production in France, and in particular, at Paris as a producer of dies for other mints.
