Roman Coins and Their Stories

Classics 480 - Spring 2020

This course will provide insights into everyday life in Rome and its territories through the evidence of the coins minted from the Roman Republic until the collapse of the Western Roman Empire in AD 476 and beyond. We will discuss general numismatics, starting with the history of coins and coinage, and we will understand how these small objects became an intrinsic part of the Roman way of life, and what evidence they provide for daily life in Rome, from ideology to religion, politics and culture.
