Description

Byzantine numismatics is one of the oldest disciplines of Byzantine studies, one that has contributed not only to economic but also social, religious, commercial, and institutional history and that is of relevance not only to Byzantinists, but all those who study the medieval world. The proposed session is open to papers that study coins from a material perspective, as well as to those whose argument is based primarily on evidence from coins. In addition to numismatists and Byzantinists, we hope that these sessions will draw other medievalists, who may provide insight into comparable approaches in medieval studies. Nicole Eddy
