Conoscenze e abilita' da acquisire: This is an optional module of the MA Course in Archaeological Sciences in the Visual and Material Culture of Ancient Greece and Ancient Rome. It is designed to make engage students with major issues in the study of ancient coinage, and with key methodologies and approaches, especially from the Western Mediterranean & the North-Western Provinces and with particular focus on coin finds. By the end of the module students will have consolidated their understanding of the main developments that took place in the numis¬matic history of antiquity and be able to examine critically interpretations advanced by modern scholarship.

It will help to develop students’ intellectual skills in the following areas:
— Ability to select and respond to particular methodological approaches when dealing with coinage;
— Appreciation of methodological issues in dealing with coinage;
— Understanding of the ways in which coinage have been studied since antiquity;
— Ability to present a structured chain of argument drawing together evidence into a cohesive whole;
— Ability to select and apply appropriate problem-solving methodologies;
— Ability to conduct independent research and analysis.

It will also help to develop the following key transferable skills:
— Written and oral communication skills;
— Organisational skills;
— Ability to evaluate intellectual progress;
— IT skills – word processing.
Modalita' di esame: Exams consist either in a written piece of work or in an oral colloquium to analyse and to comment on ‘gobbets’ (material evidence) and questions related to the topics included in the module and/or in the course bibliography.

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.
